It's not a abstract dataset, you can use it. But it's true that it's
also used by TCustomSQLQuery.

You can see TBufDataset as something like the TClientDataset of Delphi.
Main difference is that you can hook up some data to a TClientDataset
using a provider. With TBufdataset you can connect to the data by adding
a descendent of it. 

But it's also possible to use streams to read/write the data, or simply
files. Just like TMemDataset.
