`define-derived-mode' says:

:abbrev-table TABLE
        Use TABLE instead of the default.
        A nil value means to simply use the same abbrev-table as the parent.

Two issues:

- If the slot isn't served, no abbrev-table exists AFAIS. A bug IMHO: Specification should be required only for non-defaults. Ie ":abbrev-table nil" should be the default.

- If a name is given which doesn't represent a valid table, the mode hook should make an empty one from it silently.
