The system you are describing sounds great Felix! W/criticalartware we are working towards similar sorts of organization of the data and contributions that make up our application/platform. Structures such as these are incredibly exciting and playful (i.e. game-like) for all involved. It would seem that the artists who where selected would also be interested in the possibilities of such an open and dynamic system.
Deadtech's "CIRCUMVENTION DEVICE" project is an ex. of the use of the GPL to openly distribute works. Each piece is also commented on by the artist, but no forum exists to add yr own comments or upload yr own modifications.
What is so attractive about the kind of structure you are describing for the loungellab documentation is the generative quality and flexibility of the system. Those qualities certainly do complicate instutionalization in it's various forms by helping keep the work and the structure/context slippery and malleable.

Yes, that is _very_ engaging, especially the approach wherein "redirected source" can autonomously and/or organically generate it's own environment, context, structure, etc and/or respond to it's use.
