Yes, and that's the first thing we test indeed when we run the upgrade test.

For people who might have saved an image.
For people who are using an old C-L-C that *did* save an image
(don't laugh: my work laptop, running a 2010 ubuntu, has c-l-c 6.18
saving an image of clisp or sbcl with ASDF 1.374 from December 2009).
For people using require on an old Lisp that provides an old ASDF
(e.g. CLISP today still ships with ASDF 2.011 from November 2010).
For finding bugs in the ASDF upgrade process itself.
