That seems to also be the case for Fedora:

sh-5.1$ dnf provides "*site-lisp/asymptote/asy-mode.el"
symptote-2.81-1.fc36.x86_64 : Descriptive vector graphics language
Repo        : @System
Matched from:
Other       : *site-lisp/asymptote/asy-mode.el

I do not think this is a good idea:

- I am not involved in the development of asymptote, so this solution
  would put maintenance of ob-asymptote.el beyond my reach.

- I have no idea whether developers of Asymptote have any interest in

- Comparing to another language: what is the situation e.g. with
  Haskell? We have ob-haskell.el (thanks to Lawrence Bottorff). In my
  distro at least, I have Haskell mode installed separately. Should we
  then move ob-haskell.el into the package supplying Haskell mode?

- Somehow I also think that the proposed solution would be close to the
  idea of including ob-C.el into a C compiler distribution.

All the best,
