Is the boldface type really necessary to the understanding of the equation? The surrounding text may shed further light on the matter, but it doesn't seem to me that there is any mathematical significance to its use.
If you were to use the boldface indicator, then you must use the letter sign, which would be contrary to the usual use of the letter sign with Roman Numerals. I think that I may be inclined to use a TN to indicate that the IX in MDIX and the 10-1 are bolded in print, rather than clutter the math expression.
