    Since this came up somewhere else, it's probably good to note that Tyler Lawson proved that the difficult-to-check "invertibility hypothesis" actually follows from the other axioms: http://www-users.math.umn.edu/~tlawson/papers/invertibility.pdf

    I’m not sure what I think about this proof. It seems to go like this:

    1. Simplicial sets satisfy the invertibility hypothesis (by work of Dwyer and Kan).
    2. Cubical sets are monoidally Quillen equivalent to simplicial sets, hence also satisfy the invertibility hypothesis.
    3. Any otherwise-excellent model category admits a monoidal Quillen functor from cubical sets, hence also satisfies the invertibility hypothesis.

    Part of me feels as though the use of simplicial and cubical sets ought to be β\beta-reducible out of this proof to obtain a proof that actually works directly with an otherwise-excellent model category. But another part of me finds it a pleasing application of the “classifier principle” that if you can find a universal object with some structure (e.g. classifying space, classifying topos, syntactic category of a type theory), then working directly with that universal object can be an easier way to prove that something holds in all such structures.

    Added more examples and a properties section, and also some discussion of Lawson’s proof that the invertibility hypothesis is redundant.
