I guess it comes down to whether there's a difference between "exclusive rights to produce" and "exclusive rights to production of".  I'm not sure either way.
 
For what it's worth, I typically say that a patent grants the right to prevent others from exploiting your invention for a limited period of time.  It sounds a little more affirmitive than granting the right to exclude others from making, using, selling, etc.  It also dovetails with the other side of the coin: the requirement that you make your invention public knowledge.  It's less precise, but more accurate.
 
Regards.
