Flash is a constrained environment.  It is a VM running in a browser in an
operating system, surrounded by various layers of security.  Developing for
it is not too far removed from the old days of fitting a DOS program into
640K of memory.

Even if the language allowed abstract classes, the overhead of having them
is too high.  Having interfaces for every class is too expensive.  Thus, no
rule can be universally applied.
