Is there any way to say in an abstract class that any implementing classes cannot add extra methods, only define the abstract ones?

I want to propose "final abstract class" as a solution to this: it can be extended, and the abstract methods can be added, but nothing more than that can be done. And the extended class has to be final itself.
