Sure. However, in free software there is another important
motivation: the individual power to create something useful by
immediate using the most developed forces of production. And this
is called selbstentfaltung: bring something useful into existence as
an expression of individual needs being the condition of the
selbstentfaltung of others and vice versa.

This brings two questions:

1) How do you test it empirically

Continuous testing is running since 1991 when Torvalds releaded Linux 
V0.01. It has been proven valid.

2) What are the practical consequences


Looking at conditions: Do they support or limit selbstentfaltung?
Looking at needs: Are they in the focus?
Looking at the process: Can anybody participate?
Looking at the communication: Is full transparency given?
Looking at gender issues: Is participation open and non-discriminatory?
Looking at alienation dangers: Are there influences from outside?
