Well in C++ at least abstract has a specific meaning, and from Webster's we
"Considered apart from concrete existence: an abstract concept. "
What we have here in this case is a union of several concrete concepts, it's
more like a wildcard really: "match a or b or c".
That's the logic anyway, but as I said before I'm not sure how much it
