I want to write a rule like that does the following:

act on
    all messages from contacts that are in my address book
do
    move it to the folder <known>
except
    if another rule matches

Optimally I would like to provide a list of rules to match. Is something like this possible?

Make the last two rules in your Mail rules list the following:

If Sender is not in my Address Book,
Stop evaluating rules

If Sender is in my Address Book,
Move message to mailbox ___
