Better not, because placement and spacing around and between
and relative ordering of abstracts and keywords are often bound
to very specific rules. Rules you don't want to burden users
with, like

"if there is an english abstract, it should come before the
german abstract. If there are freestyle keywords on top of the
required classifications, they should follow the abstracts with
a space above of 12pt and below of 12ot, otherwise there should
be space below the classifications of 24pt, unless a motto
(see below) is also given".

You get the idea? Journal editors can be evil bastards sometimes....

Best wishes,
Taco
