"Local device is not AED-Capable" in "show otv site"?

I have two site doing unicast OTV. I just configured one site (config below). Understand there's no adjacency at the moment, but why in "show otv site", local device is not AED-capable? The site has only one Edge device, so shouldn't it be the AED for every extended VLAN?

Here is "show otv site" and "show otv", and the OTV configs on the device. It's a OTV VDC on Nexus 7k. Po1 is the internal interface. Po2 is the Join interface. The VDC is EIGRP with the Core VDC over the Join interface.


OTV-1# sh otv site

Dual Adjacency State Description
    Full     - Both site and overlay adjacency up
    Partial  - Either site/overlay adjacency down
    Down     - Both adjacencies are down (Neighbor is down/unreachable)
          - Site-ID mismatch detected

    Hostname OTV-1  
    System-ID e4c7.2202.42c4
    Site-Identifier 0222.0222.0222
