I guess clients will be slower than servers (such as INN) to adopt NNTP -
they need to wait that servers are up to the task.

Leafnode barely supports RFC 3977.  Where some words such as XOVER were
just sanctioned by the standard and lost their "X" prefix, leafnode
understands, for instance, "OVER" and "HDR", but that's about it.
