Source code in this context refers to the prefered form of
modification which is transformed into the form or forms used by the
end user or viewer.

See SGML, texi, docbook, and pod for examples of documentation which
has an untransformed form (source code) and multiple transformed forms
(compiled code).

Quod Erat Demonstrandum is typically reserved for much more rigorous
statements of proof. It's woefully out of place here, especially when
we have been applying the DFSG to varying degrees to all parts of
Debian for some time now.
