That was the problem that came up in the discussions among a number of us
that led to this paper. The early view is indeed a valid publication at
the time it comes online (any clicking on the DOI leads you to the
archived electronic early view). But apparently, the early view version
gets trashed once the paginated journal version of the article comes out.
If it is archived anywhere, I could not find it. Clicking on the same DOI
[= archived version] goes directly to the paged version and not the early
view publication.

One would think that "archiving" means permanence, but this is not so when
the original archived version changes.

You should not be able to do a "bait and switch" in nomenclature.
