GCL is working on being ANSI compliant and there is work to try to port
Axiom to other CL implementations.

Axiom isn't really structured as a library although with some effort
I suppose it could be made into one. Unlike other computer algebra
systems Axiom is strongly dependent on it's type structure which
is associated with every result. A lisp call would have to know how
to carry this structure.

But Axiom is just a program implemented in common lisp (CLtL2) so
it is entirely possible to load lisp code into an Axiom image and
use it from there.
