You cannot put citations in the abstract section at all (see RFC-Editor 
page that defines the policy)

Based on the below it is OK to put something in abstract aka
  (RFC xxxx)

This looks ok to me. Sounds as a normative ref even.
You MIB doc will not becoem RFC till the rfcxxxx is also an RFC
and RFC-Editor normally takes care of syncing them up.

Hope this helps,
