mmm... i am not aware of a solution (you might want to post this to the
docbook maillinglist: http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/mailinglist/index.html

some ideas:
1) there is an abstract element... as you pointed out, maybe that is an solution
2) maybe you can use some additional elements (in your own namespace):
   <stein:select-for-presentation><para>some text</para></stein:select-for-presentation>

   or maybe even more complex...

   the customize the stylesheet (DSSSL or XSLT) to only print general presentation layout,
   and only from the DocBook source those parts that are selected with the
   <presentation:select> tag...

Anyone on the DocBook maillist seen a solution for this purpose?
