Thanks for these references.
I don't plan to add Netware support to our stack at start.
Our top priority at moment is to finish the R1 planned features (that's 
R5 net_server & BONE both stacks features).

But looking at these protocols can help keeping a stack design from 
being a TCP/IP v4 centric only design, 
an easy trap.

Yep. Planed for R2, I guess.
