It looks like asdf.lisp is a pathological case as it includes at line 508:
(defmethod shared-initialize :after ((operation operation) slot-names
(declare (ignore slot-names force))
;; empty method to disable initarg validity checking
which if I disable this form before evaluation in SBCL, returns the same
error as ABCL. So, this has more to do with the way we are invoking and
interpreting the various generic functions in MAKE-INSTANCE, then
problems with CHECK-INITARGS. Looking through SBCL is somewhat
instructive, but confusing as well.
