First, a large number of RFCs were never submitted as XML, and even for those that were (like the IPP updates that became RFCs 8010 and 8011, later STD 92) I can't seem to find the XML sources!

Second, you need to know which figures contain ABNF...

The point was more that there is currently no common repository of ABNF associated by RFC, so importing rules from an RFC is a manual effort...
