+!topic Obsolete reference to Finalization.Initialize being abstract
+!reference AARM 4.3(5.c)
+!from Christoph Grein 02-03-06
+This is not a RM bug, since it is in the annotated version only. The sentence
+in question states:
+5.c If the ancestor_part is a subtype_mark the Initialize procedure for the
+    ancestor type is applied to the ancestor part after default-initializing
+    it[, unless the procedure is abstract,] as described in 7.6.
+These operations however are not abstract (it is a remnant of the Ada9X phase)
+and thus the part in brackets above should be removed.

+Although the Initialize procedure on Finalization.Controlled is not abstract,
+it is still possible that some (abstract) descendant of this type might have
+an abstract Initialize procedure.
