Again, I don't see how you can justify creating what is just hassle for the sake of giving everyone else a few extra ships to watch. There are going to be hundreds of ships floating around the different stations, probably more than people will want around considering how fast there are going to be derelicts from people who give up the game. Asteroid testing is something that has absolutely no effect on the rest of the community, besides seeing ships flying out and in 12 times as they work to adjust the mining system. People working to design a better carrier or automated factory are going to provide minimal "player interaction" as well. Most likely scenario they'll build a fighter ship themselves rather than have another player wait for them to keep rebuilding their carrier system. Automated factories are going to be built in secrecy and require a lot of testing that will basically just be hassle since you'll have to keep scrapping the poorly made products and going back to feed the factory raw resources over and over. None of these things benefit the community enough to warrant the design process being straight up annoying.
