I don't think this is possible out of the box, but it seems like a
useful feature that could be added to the slime-indentation contrib.

Have a look at the `common-lisp-get-indentation' function in
slime/contrib/slime-cl-indent.el. It supports 3 methods for looking up
indentation information. This is the place where you could add a 4th
if you want to do it on the Emacs Lisp side.

slime/contrib/swank-indentation.lisp also has a customization
mechanism as well, *application-hints-tables*, which might be useful
if you want to do it on the Common Lisp side.
