This bit isn't correct. It's perfectly feasible for a license to say it
is one-directionally compatible (i.e. explicitly allow relicensing or
use in a project of a particular license) without the other license
saying anything about it.

I can write a new copyleft license today that is explicitly
one-directionally compatible with the AGPLv3, and no change to AGPLv3 is
needed for that to work.
