>I've read up on the doc page and I'm a little unclear on a few things:

You right with all questions: indeed it is not so obvious and clear in
documentation. Will definitely update it. Also I am looking to replace
μTP transport protocol with pure TCP (implemented on pure Go) or
something even simpler. It looks like unnecessary overhead. But I should
investigate it deeper.

By default no, but can be added quite easily, that I will do. I just
ignored that feature for later times.

Currently no (without any reason :-)), but you are right that it is
completely ordinary use-case. Will do it.

It is related only to Yggdrasil network, to its "AllowedPublicKeys"
configuration option. Will make it more clear in documentation too.

>- Either way, I'm unclear how to give that list of allowed incoming

You can control (or allow any) only peer connections to the listener,
with the option above. No ability to limit who can be answered to as
NNCP service itself, except for removing noise* keys from configuration
to forbid online protocol usage at all.
