If I want to see if it'll do what I want, given the rarity of the protocol, should I be hunting down a commercial router to validate against or be dusting off my Indiana Jones cosplay gear in order to validate against GateD 3.6?

I have a partially helpful response, check out https://frrouting.org/
which is a Quagga fork that has merged in IS-IS, as well as a bunch of
other features. They also have some test results from
https://www.opensourcerouting.org/test-results/ who note they are open
to requests for specific test results.
