Section 2.48 says:

   When rendered, source code is always shown in a monospace font.  When
   <sourcecode> is a child of <figure> or <section>, it provides full
   control of horizontal whitespace and line breaks.  When formatted, it
   is indented relative to the left margin of the enclosing element.  It
   is thus useful for source code and formal languages (such as ABNF
   [RFC5234] or the RNC notation used in this document).  (When
   <sourcecode> is a child of other elements, it flows with the text
   that surrounds it.)  Tab characters (U+0009) inside of this element
   are prohibited.

It should say:

   When rendered, source code is always shown in a monospace font. 
   Furthermore, it provides full
   control of horizontal whitespace and line breaks.
   Tab characters (U+0009) inside of this element
   are prohibited.

Notes:

The text hints at uses of <sourcecode> as inline element, but the grammar does not allow any such use.
