- By hand isn't so bad
- New XSLT from XML2RFC (lots of existing authors may start here)
- HTML editor that knows a little about CSS classes
- Markdown-ish (bet this ends up being popular, if someone writes it)
- An in-browser UI (this is possible, but a ton of work to be good enough)

Getting it into a relatively-close approximation through any of these
means is pretty easy, and then the cleanup tools can stiffen up the syntax
to be more regular.
