yet another logic family?

I've just encountered some datasheets for parts that I've never heard of 
before -- 74ABTxxx parts.  The lack of a "C" in there would seem to indicate 
TTL of some sort but looking at the datasheet the power supply current would 
seem to indicate CMOS of some sort,  it's in the uA range.

Anybody ever encountered these before?

What can you tell me about them if so?

I note that packaging seems to be _only_ surface-mount styles.
