If lawyers are now inventors, does that mean that coders and engineers can now take over writing laws for the legislature to pass?

I'm thinking we need to finally get a proper source control system for our laws (none of this manually applying diffs crap), do a better job of gathering user requirements, create better documentation and a real framework for the design, add test cases, checks against reintroducing old bugs, and finally add an actual testing stage, rather than dumping every half-baked law straight into production immediately after passing it...
