I am that choir you've heard about preaching to.

Most of the time (at least when I have m'druthers), I'druther create abstract code, too. And, extensible from the start since it is a given that new features will be needed eventually and if it's well done it will be around a while.

So - roughly half the company runs on a couple of my engines (article, some day) - and their portable can (and have) been repurposed because they really are abstract enough to run pretty much anything.

And what do I hear? What gets back to me? Management wonders what I do. Were it not for ethic's I'd have pulled the plug on them and they'd find out that way. Option 2: put my name and creation date on the pages (never thought I'd ever need to sign my work). They're beginning to get the picture.

But - as you observed from and with your own experience - an abstraction that is reusable to solve endless problems doesn't get much appreciation. A graceful solution, maybe by it's graceful nature, goes unnoticed.
