The difference presumably being that peer review is often done in paid work time. Lack of credit is mitigated by getting paid ...

But this happens every day with peer reviewed publications. I am the taxonomic editor for a journal and what I see submitted is often quite different to what is published but none of the readers know that. The most credit received is sometimes a comment in the acknowledgments section "and the two anonymous referees."
