I don't see "creating new functions" as an advantage.  ABCs don't do this, nor does any other subclassing.   It seems like an attempt to create a false illusion about where the code resides.  This feels like feature creep with no real advantage that anyone cares about.  

In the non-templating version, the code is simple and it is clear where it came-from (i.e. a code inspector can find it).

IMO, the factory functions just make it harder to grok this code.  Please resist the urge invent new magic and stick with the simplest Python that gets the job done.
