Quote:
You cannot directly implement a generic class.


I need to rephrase that; you cannot instantiate an abstract class.

Quote:
2) The class provides default implementations of its methods to all instances


This, too, needs rephrasing; when I create an abstract class, I usually define default implementations of all methods, any of which inheritors are free to override.
