The proper address to use for bibxml issues is citations at rfc-editor.org.

The bibxml files are created from the same data that generates the 
1id-index.txt and 1id-abstract.txt files. If you look in there, you'll 
find the following:

   "Requirements for IP Multicast Receiver Access Control",
   william.atwood at concordia.ca, Salekul Islam, Bing Li, 2014-07-04,
   <draft-atwood-mboned-mrac-req-01.txt>

Look similar?

In other words, the underlying problem is in the I-D database.

Henrik, is this an issue that the ietf secretariat can fix?
