Well, after dodging your requests up until this point, I'm happy to be
able to give you some good news instead. :->

A good friend worked with ForthOS and did indeed implement IP, TCP, UDP,
ARP, PCI, and Ethernet support (OK, he's a good friend *and* a great
programmer). There's even a telnet server so you can telnet into a
ForthOS system. I just need to fold it in, see how much credit he wants
in how public a way, all that sort of stuff. Everything else you say,
I agree with, although it's not something I personally would be working
