re: Until this moment, I believed that the specification said that making an
instance of such a class signalled an error. . . .
See X3J13 Document 88-002R, page 2-24, where it says of metaclass
StandardClass: "All the superclasses of a class must be defined
before an instance of the class can be made". I interpret "defined"
to mean "finalized" as that term has been subsequently used.
