> 1. Is there any good reason to remove this code?
Yes. If it's not tested, reviewed, or in general use, then it's more likely to be harmful (source of bugs) than useful.

I think only really old ISS, but that's why I asked.
> 3. Is this any of the formats used by SSH?
No; the seven characters "RSA_NET" do not appear in the openssh source.
