Raymond Hettinger added the comment:

I think you're reading too much into the docs.  Most useful classes provide a __new__ or __init__ to put data into instances.  The docs are simply saying that that responsibility lies with the implementer rather than with the ABC.

IMO, the docs are more useful as-is.  Were we to accept the patch, it wouldn't be long before another user reported a bug saying that the implemented the other methods but the class didn't do anything useful.

resolution:  -> not a bug
status: open -> closed
