I am assuming that to guarantee funding, Sky had to be invited to the Tour ... and to guarantee that (before they were awarded a UCI pro-tour licence) ASO had some conditions.

Quite honestly, given the history of cycling ... especially at the Tour ... its not that surprising that ASO are taking an interest in this kind of thing.

So why have we heard of no other team doing this?

You forgot NetApp at the Giro this year SlowRider, and yes that sort of sponsoring is dodgy but we know about that. I don't think we're getting the whole story here, certainly not all of why ASO "requires" things from Sky.
