I first read this query as being, by act of pasting the BCP14 text in, that
xml2rfc would magically change "MUST" into <bcp14>MUST</bcp14>.
I thought that would be neat, but it can't be what you are asking.

AFAIK, there is no <bcp14 type="MUST" /> markup.

I think that they <bcp14>SHOULD</bcp14>.
I am in favour of more meta markup.
