FWIW, I don't think you can do a straight migration, because some
elements have different semantics in boostbook and docbook. In
Boostbook 'methodname' and 'classname' are links to a method or class
respectively (no, they're not in the dtd), but in docbook they're used
to name a method or class. I think you could distinguish the different
uses by their contexts, or maybe namespaces? But if you wish to use
new tag names which are more consistent with docbook, they could be
added to a new version of boostbook for easier transition.
