I’ve find it useful to use an abstractproperty to specify an attribute that concrete subclasses have to define.  Was that wrong?  From a technical viewpoint, I replaced a method with a data attribute, but from a doc/human viewpoint, replacing a property with a regular attribute did not seem wrong to me.

So, if there are guidelines about “almost certainly wrong” uses of the ABC machinery, they should IMO be documented.
