I don't think this counts as incompatible, since it would only be a
STYLE-WARNING (so not break anything).
I'm concerned about postponing this because I don't see implementations
-- *especially* the commercial ones -- picking up ASDF revisions quickly.
So I view ASDF releases as a very finite resource, and one where we have
to get the most bang for the buck.
I'd rather postpone than push a release out the door, and maybe find
it's the only one that the implementations will bundle for this year.
