Lots of NAS devices these days have iSCSI target support. Adding support for Haiku to be an iSCSI initiator could open additional development and user use applications under Haiku.
NetBSD has a fairly simple initiator that is under a MIT compatible license (attached, obtained from ftp://ftp.fi.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/packages/distfiles/)
An iSCSI initiator presents the remote block device locally. It isn't a filesystem but binding the block device over the network to the local host. Only one host can generally use an iSCSI target at a time (unless you're using a clustering filesystem like GPFS or OCFS)
iSCSI initiator boot support was added in #5319 for PPC
