It was once the case that bodyless functions are implicitly abstract.  This was
partly changed
http://www.digitalmars.com/d/1.0/changelog1.html#new080
but I don't know what change was made to the spec to reflect this.

I think the underlying problem is that there's no mandatory explicit notation
for externally defined functions.

Not necessarily - it could realise that classes A and B and never used and so
generate no code for them.
