I applaud your gesture. I'd just like to point out that the language used on
the article is contradictory:
"© The Author. This article is provided under the following license:
Creative Commons CC0 1.0 Universal (CC0 1.0) Public Domain

The work can be copyrighted by the author or public domain, but not both.
Also, CC0 is only partly a license; first and foremost it's a waiver, and it
only uses licensing as a fall-back option.

In general, these sorts of issues are the sorts of things people need to be
educated about if the public domain is to become a normal venue for
publishing science.
