Why not - this is not an issue on the PIC, as even if you did manage
to insert your own code you could not extract information from the
protected area.

Subroutines are the only way to do lookup tables in the low-end parts,
so yes, of course subroutines!
If you want to protect a subroutine,  just put a GOTO to the body of
your routine in page zero.

Not as useful, as post-protection programming of lookup tables would
be tricky and inefficient to implement.
