Actually, if I was them, I wouldn't bother updating until I saw 3.2.1! ;-)

But seriously, waiting until the first bugfixes show up doesn't work
well unless *somebody* runs the initial release and tests it in actual
day-to-day use.

It would be nice to figure out a way that ASDF could work nicely with
the implementations so that implementors have an easy option to use the
latest ASDF patch version day-to-day and see how well it plays with the
latest version of the CL implementation.
