It is perfectly compatible.

Sure, Maxima doesn't depend on pre-installed libraries of lisp code.
What's at issue is:
- Where to the library sources get installed?
- Where do the implementation dependent fasl and/or other binary files
- How do we manage fasl updates when a lisp implementation changes?
- How do they all hook into asdf or similar
- How do we scale to include the hundreds of Common Lisp libraries
that gentoo and others package?
- etc etc etc
