It's ASL'ed.

They're not ASL'ed.  And they don't exist (see below).

If it comes to predictions, I predict this system isn't going to be
adopted by users at all, based on the observation that users *haven't*
been swamping us with skin submissions.  We haven't had a single skin
submission since forrest-css.  This is solving a non-existent problem.
