I'd interpret source code as anything that there is value in having extracted from the RFC and is then machine used. Anything on a single page that can be cut and pasted is however too trivial to need special treatment.

That depends on how broadly you interpret "source code".

IMO ABNF and XML both qualify, and *lots* of RFCs provide one or the 
other of those.
