Liveness of a variable is not a property of the possible values of the
variable, so an abstract interpretation that abstract sets of values can
not directly express liveness.
A continuation is a functional representation of the future computation
from the present point until termination. Since liveness is a property
of the future computation, you can express liveness as an abstraction
over the set of possible continuations.
