There is a exception: when a public body calls for a development by  
tendering,
they usually require a deposit of the sources, and even sometimes in  
a public repository.
If we could convince them to require to make the models public as  
well, we would rapidly have a huge base of models.

Similarly, specialised conferences could require all technical papers  
to deposit their full models in the repository. Indeed, science must  
be repeatable and other disciplines already have such requirements.

Agreed, but it is nevertheless interesting as typical cases of  
beginners' mistakes,
and about the variety of strange things that people do when faced to  
the same problem.
