Discrepancy with protected status of code formatting templates

Template:ic and Template:bc are protected from editing, but Template:hc is unprotected. Template:hc should probably be protected as well, and then the section Help:Template#Code_formatting_templates should be moved under Help:Template#Protected_templates.

I also noticed that Template:Pkg is protected from editing, but Template:Grp and Template:AUR are not.

The first report is fixed the KISS way :)
All the most extensively used templates are explicitly protected now, a spammer could exploit them to reach a vast audience with almost no effort. Some templates were previously protected only by cascading effect from either the Main Page or the Installation Guide.
Thank you! Closing.
