Section 3.2.4 says:

A server MUST reject any received request message that contains
whitespace between a header field-name and colon with a response code
of 400 (Bad Request).

It should say:

A server MUST reject any received request message that contains
whitespace between a header field-name and colon with a status code
of 400 (Bad Request).

Notes:

Basically HTTP RFCs seem to prefer "status code" over "response code". RFC 7231 Section 6 uses status code or "Response Status Code", but rarely uses the term "response code" (though it uses it, once). Some technical books actually refer those codes as "response codes". I tend to be confused with the mixture of those two terms.
