It should be called Oka-Grauert-Gromov principle/theory. Gromov viewed it in his book n partial differential relations as one of the examples of h-principle.

There is now a model category structure on a category of presheaves of simplicial version of a Stein site where Oka maps are a fibration:
Theorem (Lárusson) The category of complex manifolds and holomorphic maps can be embedded into a Quillen model category such that:
- a holomorphic map is a weak equivalence in the ambient model category if and only if it is a homotopy equivalence in the usual topological sense.
- a holomorphic map is a fibration if and only if it is an Oka map. In particular, a complex manifold is fibrant if and only if it is Oka.
- a complex manifold is cofibrant if and only if it is Stein.
- a Stein inclusion is a cofibration.
This construction stems from some observations from Jardine, and uses his intermediate model structure from
