Something like:

As a style issue, 3rd party code which wishes to use ABCs should
follow the lead of the core and standard library, and be written in
such a way as to allow, but not require, the use of ABCs.

But as I said, I'm coming to the view that worrying about such things
is FUD. So I'm happy enough to relegate this sort of thing to possible
a PEP 8 amendment if such an issue really does become a problem.
