Can I ask, would that be the idea to be considered fair, for exclusive; either upfront payment and then no sync sharing, and the writers share of the backend, or no upfront, share the sync, keep the writers share of backend, and have a time-limit with reversion option for the track?

Reversion clauses seem to be more prevalent in publishing venues....

As far as exclusive libraries are concerned, I'm not aware of any doing reversion clauses. Perpetuity is the name of the game.

Traditional paradigms - in perpetuity up front buyout of publishing and master rights (no sync sharing), 100% of writers to the writer. There are exceptions.
