There's one thing that the "Paladin" class doesn't have in this game that's pretty common in most others:

the ability to heal via "laying of the hands" or something along those lines....

See http://www.wowwiki.com/Lay_on_Hands for some info, and also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paladin_(Dungeons_%26_Dragons)

Everyone can cast healing in the game.

The "laying on hands" of a paladin is more along the lines of a special class-specific skill, not a casting ability or a spell or prayer. Of course, the ability to lay on hands is granted by one's deity, and it's also only able to be used so many times per day (I think it's level-based?).

merged

Also, paladins and priests should have the ability to "Turn Undead" -- not as a spell per se but as an ability, although turning undead would take a turn and the character wouldn't be able to cast other spells or attack ....

Turning undead would deal a certain amount of damage to all undead creatures within a certain radius, and if the character's ability to turn undead is high enough (with bonushes for cha), then undead mobs might even be smitten in place ....

Once again, classes are unrelated to spells or similar abilities.
A class is like a devotion to melee, distance, wizardry or prayers.
Or a combination of these attack types.

As for healing abilities, many new spells/prayers are being implemented atm.

They're also unrelated to deities and alignment.
One may roleplay their choice of class and others but that's solely up to the player.
