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.

I agree with Tu: a decent explanation (greater than a 50 word PR-bullsh*t soundbite) might have been better. You don't go to - where are they, just south of Paris someplace, I think, Montargis? - and present to an organisation like ASO just for the tea and biscuits.

One of the world's best funded cycling teams sponsored by an enormously powerful publishing family meeting with a sports event organiser owned by, ahem, an enormously powerful publishing family.

People have every reason to be suspicious. And I am.
