Yes -- it is.

I don't even know if you have to go this far.  Wouldn't this require a
change to the Docbook DTD?  I can't decide if this is necessary or
not.  Sometimes documents may have abstracts which seem
inappropriately large for putting in a description HTML META field.

You have interaction with chunking too.  Sectional elements can have
abstract, can't they?  so it would be nice to take the ancestor's
abstract, or fallback to <bookinfo> or whatever.
