OK, that is not something that I would ever think of as an antonym, so
even though I am not a native speaker I do not think we should be using
it here as documentation and comments are supposed to be understood by
all people from around the world and not by English majors only.

Out of curiosity, is this dictionary available online? I would really
want to see to what particular meaning of "embedded" they assign
"unilateral" as antonym so that I know better next time I see it used.

Yes, and it is also a well defined term in CS.

Thanks.
