You're right, I got the wrong acronym here. There are a set of licenses
that collapse the grants into one. It's simpler to do this, but may not
be better, as I noted. Then again, perhaps I'm totally wrong about what
was intended by "asymmetrical" Someone else noted this is not clear
what this term is
supposed to mean. Maybe it refers to some other clause entirely?
