The term "associated asynchronous state" is long, ugly and misleading terminology. When introduced we agreed upon that we should come up with a better name. Here it is: "liaison state". Since the state is hidden and provides synchronization of a future with its corresponding promise, we believe "liaison state" is a much better and shorter name (liaison ~ (typically hidden) relationship)
[ Resolution proposed by ballot comment: ]
Change all occurrences of "associated asynchronous state" to "liaison state".
The project editor may supply a more appopriate term, or use "liaison state", at his own discretion.
