It's also a somewhat strange construction from an English language
point of view. To make sense, it requires interpreting the word
"base" as an adjective, and when used that way it has connotations
of something to turn your nose up at. I'm assuming that's not the
impression we want to give!

Maybe something like "The ultimate base class of all classes"
would be better.
