Then you'd need range dependencies.

No-one's ever implemented it, or knows how it works, or knows what
exactly it's supposed to do. The only advantage ABI_SLOT has is that we
don't know what its limitations are, other than that it doesn't
solve any new problems (although it might slightly simplify certain
specific cases, maybe).
