Asymmetric Protocol and Symmetric Protocol

I have been trying to find informations about these two terminologies (Asymmetric Protocol and Symmetric Protocol), but I could not find something useful.

Any help ?

Thanks

http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc988

Page 12

((IGMP is an asymmetric protocol and is specified here from the point of view of a host, rather than a multicast agent)).

http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2710.txt

Page 2

((MLD is an asymmetric protocol, specifying different behaviors for multicast listeners and for routers.For those multicast addresses))

Second:

Are the above (asymmetric protocol) related to "asymmetric routing" in the link below :
