Actually, the abstract does appear in the PDF output.
In the HTML output, the stylesheet actively suppresses
abstract, using this template from html/biblio.xsl:

<xsl:template match="abstract" mode="bibliography.mode">
  <!-- suppressed -->

Stylesheet author preference, I guess.
You'll need to override this template to get
the abstract into HTML output.
