When thinking more about this, I come even up with some strategies, to at least mitigate the pain of integration.
1) lose coupling, avoid necessity of integration as much as possible (I mentioned this above)
2) integrate as early as possible, and avoid late bad surprises
3) it can help a lot to collocate developers of the modules / parts during the integration phase. Communication is so much easier face-to-face.

And now I am discovering, I am talking about integration strategies, not about integration testing strategies. Lol - I am developer, yes!
