Is it possible to make a content type "abstract" in SharePoint 2010, i.e. users will only able to use the content types that inherit from the parent, and not create items/lists that use the base content type directly?

To a certain extent, declaring the content type as hidden may help you. More information: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.sharepoint.spcontenttype.hidden.aspx
