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.

Hi Pascal, r14347 moves the check for lambda list congruence to reinitialize-instance :before.  I chose this location instead of shared-initialize since only in this case can we have existing methods.  Changing method-class is actually allowed according to the hyperspec so that test is gone.  I only did light testing (basically, building abcl and running ansi-tests) but I trust you'll let me know when something's broken.  :)
