Tired of tiered pricing?

In response to the ICOLC Statement on the Global Economic Crisis
and Its Impact on Consortial Licenses (or not?) the American Journal
of Hypertension, since 2008 published with Nature Publishing Group,
has apparently now introduced tiered pricing and thereby will increase
its site license price for academic institutions in between 19% to 55%,
depending on Sciences FTE. For the lowest FTE price bracket,
1-499 FTE, price will increase by a mere 3% (near the median price
increase of NPG academic journals for 2010). 2010 site license prices
are now USD 986 / 807 EUR / GBP 519 (UK,ROW) for 10000+
FTE, the base price in the lowest bracket is USD 657 / EUR 538 /
GBP 346. The price increase of AJH from 2008 to 2009 had been 11%.
The journal publishes 12 issues/year with ca. 1350 p.

In the Thomson Reuters Journal Citation Reports, category "Peripheral
Vascular Disease", AJH is ranked #19 out of 56 in Impact factor
(2008: 3,122), and #12 in Eigenfactor score (behind journals like
Hypertension (American Heart Association / LWW), Journal of
Hypertension (International and European Society of Hypertension /
LWW), and Am J Physiol C-Heart (American Physiological Society).

(Note that the current pricing calculator at
http://www.nature.com/libraries/site_licenses/pricing.html
displays for this title tiered pricing for 2009 also, so that no price
change becomes apparent in comparing 2009 and 2010 price levels,
which are displayed side by side.
However, I happened to find an archived output of May 15, 2009 from
the pricing calculator on the web at the Kenezy Life Sciences Library,
University of Debrecen, Hungary, that confirmed our previous pricing)

The two sister journals from this field at NPG, Hypertension Research
(Japanese Society of Hypertension Research, 7% price increase for
2010) and the Journal of Human Hypertension (3,5% price increase
for 2010), desisted from introducing tiered pricing so far. Through NPG,
both provide free access after 5 years, AJH has a closed archive (just
like the Journal of Hypertension, too). For comparison: Hypertension
and Am. J. Physiol. C-Heart provide free access after 12 months.
