And AUPs [theoretically] set forth definitions.

Of course, there exist colo providers with "unlimited 10 Gbps bandwidth"
whose AUPs read "do not use 'too much' bandwith or we will get angry",
thus introducing ambiguity regarding just _for what_ one is paying...

Perhaps "abuse" is best _operationally_ defined as "something that
angers someone enough that it's at least sort of likely to cost you some
money -- and maybe even a lot"?

Were the definition clear, I doubt there'd be such a long NANOG thread.
(Yes, I'm feeling optimistic today.)
