Sure, add this to your customization layer:

<xsl:template match="phrase[@role='caps']//text()">
   <xsl:value-of select="translate(., 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz',

This template matches on any text nodes ( text() )
that are ancestors ( // ) of <phrase role="caps">.
It applies the XSL translate() function to
the current node's text.  The translation converts
the lowercase letters to uppercase letters.
