However, since they are done already at such an early stage, some useful MOP idioms are not easily expressible, or at least need to be expressed differently, and I think it would be better to perform the checks at a later stage, for example inside shared-initialize.


That sounds quite reasonable.  Logged at http://trac.common-lisp.net/armedbear/ticket/284.
