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.

I beg to differ - this is not a controlled experiment.

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?

There is one problem with that list - where does it come from?  I
don't want to say that it is invalid - but it would be more convincing
if it was systematic - otherwise it looks like just the list of
everything that is currently considered 'good'.
