Umm.  I think you'll have to construct the <reference> entry yourself, for
now.  Eventually, we should be able to build reference BCP entries for all
BCPs, using <referencegroup> where necessary; but that will only work with
vocabulary v3.  I suspect the lack of <referencegroup> is what's behind no
autogenerated BCP entries.
