Discussion of "asfalte"

Comment #1: Reasoning for creation of this word?
Gunnar Yngman (Tue Nov 18 21:14:36 2014)

This is a stage-4 fu'ivla, but I couldn't find any stage-3 fu'ivla in
jbovlaste that it's a shortening of. Why create a short form of a
non-existent word?

Even more confusing, I did find "tarla" which is a gismu with a very
similar meaning (asphalt and tar)! What made you chose this word instead
of say "ctilytarla" for an asphalt-specific word?
