There is also gradual improvement of results, which has been a tenet of science for many centuries. A first researcher publishes their basic results, a second researcher publishes their enhancements, the next one publishes a refinement in certain conditions... In these days of computer simulations it becomes essential to have both data and software, as you say, and improve on them gradually. Otherwise research papers become just a lot of hand-waving around estimations and algorithms.
