I know I can use an example block (literal example) as input to a code
block, but I haven't found a way to fontify examples. Since my input is
code (JSON, and various programming languages) I would really like to
have that, as well as the language's mode when editing by using
~org-edit-source-code~.

A code block gives me fontification, but I haven't found a way to pass a
code block as is to another code block.

For instance, something like this:

#+name: code-input
#+begin_src C
#include <foo.h>
#+end_src

#+begin_src bash :var input=input :results verbatim
cat <<EOF | cpp
${input}
EOF
#+end_src

What are my options? I hope there's either a way to fontify an example,
or to override the default execute function for a code block, or
something else that I'm not thinking of.

Sounds like you want the :noweb header and code chunks, viz.
 
#+begin_src bash :noweb yes :results verbatim
cat <<EOF | cpp
<<code-input>>
EOF
#+end_src

As far as I know, referencing a code block this way uses the results of 
executing the block as the variable, not the contents of the block.

Ah, I didn't think of that. It does have some limitations though as
:noweb isn't as flexible as shell expansion. For instance, I'm not able
to do

#+name: my-json
#+begin_src json
{
  ...
}
#+end_src

#+begin_src bash :noweb yes :results verbatim
cat <<EOF
{
  "foo": $(echo <<my-json>> | jq '@text')
}
EOF
#+end_src

Though it isn't too difficult to work around in this case:

#+begin_src bash :noweb yes :results verbatim
cat <<EOF0 | jq '@text' | cat <<EOF1
<<my-json>>
EOF0
{
  "foo": $(cat /dev/stdin)
}
EOF1
#+end_src

It's absolutely a workable solution. Thanks!
