self test for pitot static system?

A LH Cargo 772 recently took off with the two main static port lines not connected after maintenance. Clogged, capped or frozen Pitot tubes have caused air plain crashes.

Is there no self testing system commercially available or has been proposed that would detect major leaks, unconnected lines or closed ports to the outside world?
