I kind of wonder if we shouldn't be breaking the definition down into substeps rather than try to lump (essentially) the whole abiogenesis process into a single definition.

Totally agree. After all, stellar evolution plays an essential role in abiogenesis. Even though they're only 2-3 generations old, I have always felt that stars have to be included someway along the non-life--->life spectrum.

This is one of the reasons I think a multilevel definition can serve better

Ok, let's start :)

Free energy anyone?
an isolated neutron will decay into a proton, a neutron, and an anti-neutrino

I think you are on to a winner ;)
