No, you don't ;-)  From _DocBook in a Nutshell_:

The <sgmltag>BeginPage</> element marks the location of a page break.

<refsect2><title>Processing Expectations</title>
The break identified by <sgmltag>BeginPage</> may be displayed
in an online version of the document or used for legacy
purposes, but it <emphasis>is not</> expected to cause a page
break when the document is processed by an &SGML; system.

That said, if you want to engage in some tag-abuse, something
like this will probably do what you want:

(element BEGINPAGE
		break-before: 'page
		(literal " ")))
