Implementing this behavior automatically would be more complicated since you would also have to take subclasses into account. Current implementation enforces that the class is unused (as much as can be reasonably done) when its abstraction status is re-calculated, such checks cannot be done in an automatic implementation.

The question becomes whether or not we think its reasonable that an abstract class would change its abstraction status throughout its lifetime. I'd argue "not implicitly".
