I'd wait a week or two; A-B-L was recently merged into ASDF, ECL has some 
changes to merge in, ABCL may as well, and I have a minor tweak to submit 
for Clisp on Windows and a SBCL change that needs discussion.

On the CCL front, I have an old ccl-init.lisp that contained

;;; Hook ASDF into REQUIRE
(defun asdf::module-provide-asdf (name)
   (handler-bind ((style-warning #'muffle-warning))
     (let* ((asdf::*verbose-out* (make-broadcast-stream))
            (system (asdf:find-system name nil)))
       (when system
         (asdf:operate 'asdf:load-op name)
(pushnew 'asdf::module-provide-asdf *module-provider-functions*)

I forget where I found this.  What do you think about putting (something 
like) this into mainline ASDF?
