Do you know of a written explanation on how to use the <CODE BEGINS> ...
<CODE ENDS> markers?  I tried to find one without success.  I found only
usage hints, and the licensing connection.

RFC 8407 says:

     The "<CODE BEGINS>" tag SHOULD be followed by a string identifying
     the file name specified in Section 5.2 of [RFC7950]."

The predecessor RFC 6087 contains similar text.  Thus it seems the
netmod WG convention is to specify a file name.  The rfcstrip utility
mentioned in RFC 8407 requires the file name, although the file name
seems to be optional.

But some RFCs do not specify a file name for code sections.  Some
random examples are RFC 5662, RFC 6287, RFC 7861, and RFC 8290. Those
are from WGs other than netmod, though.

Just curious. :-)

Thanks,
Erik
