IMO there is a misunderstanding about the stable ABI. PyType_FromSpec() doesn't need Py_TPFLAGS_HAVE_xxx flags: this function allocates a heap type which *has* all these members (set to 0/NULL by default).

And it's not possible to define a static type using the limited C API, since the PyTypeObject structure is excluded from it on purpose.

See bpo-32388 for a similar discussion.
