[Web4lib] Wiley and ArticleSelect Tokens

We're interested in using Wiley's ArticleSelect Tokens (their version 
of "pay-per-view"), but are looking for a very particular arrangement 
that no one at Wiley seems to understand.  I'm wondering if anyone 
has set things up with them under a similar arrangement:

-  The entire campus IP address range is recognized as us (for the 
purposes of Wiley as an OpenURL source and for access to Wiley 
resources to which we subscribe)

-  A single IP address (our proxy server) is the only address that 
can spend the tokens.

This is the arrangement we use for our ScienceDirect PPV access, and 
while Wiley has not specifically said we can't do this, they can't 
seem to muster up an answer to the question posed to them, and 
instead keep giving us boilerplate answers to questions we haven't asked.

Anyone doing this with Wiley?
