I always wondered about running Class 2 transport directly over LLC2
(rather than Class 4 over LLC1).
But the only LLC2 user was netbios - and microsoft's LLC2 was broken.
Not to mention the window probing needed to handle systems that
said they supported a window of (IIRC) 15 but would discard the
5th back to back frame.
