The Romans actually had a law like that for architects of bridges, aqueducts, etc.

When the bridge or whatever went into service, the architects were required to stand underneath it. I do not know how long they had to stay there, though.

Even the Code of Hammurabi (3,800 years ago) required that, if a house should collapse killing the occupants, the architect was to be put to death.

We could learn quite a lot about responsibility from "primitive" cultures.
