TPIC2810: Output stage

Part Number: TPIC2810
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TPIC6B595

I was looking for an I2C relay driver (to drive 24V 15mA relays), in other words, an I2C version of TPIC6B595 and I came across the TPIC2810, which appears to have an identical output stage.

Why is the TPIC6B595 suitable for driving inductive loads when the TPIC2810 isn't?

Would the TPIC2810 be suitable for driving relays with a 1N4148 across each relay?

Is there an I2C version of the TPIC6B595?
