So does the higher featuresets of IOS (Cisco). I've actually done a fair
bit of that sort of routing (IPX, DECnet, and whatnot) for a living
"back then" before my health gave up on me (landing me on disability

As a matter of fact, you could even route NETBEUI if you encapsulated it
in something else (and thus i reality bridged it). We did that for a few
customers, over frame-relay, as late as 2001 (when I moved on to a
different part of the company).

Basically, any signal that you can connect to an interface on a router,
CAN be routed, provided your NOC team is creative enough.
