[Sorry for the late reply]

As far as I know, no one actively uses BUNDLE-SYSTEM for ABCL, instead
using the [ASDF-JAR ABCL contrib][1], which allows a system to
(optionally recursively) package all dependencies of an ASDF system into
a single binary artifact (a jar file containing all the code).

If I understand things conceptually correctly, if their were a stable
BUNDLE-SYSTEM, we would move the code for ASDF-JAR to use those interfaces.
