Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The problem with doing it bottom-up is that there's a huge free-rider problem.

So you really have to have a group of Big Dicks who have both enough prestige to demand transparency and enough suitably inventive and painful punishments for the people who fail to comply with that demand.

This is an area where the European Union could do a lot of good. If the EU were to demand that all publicly funded research must be published in journals that demand full disclosure (to the general public, not just to the journal), the ripples would be felt worldwide.
