Why wait?  Practice at home!  =)

No.  That is an old protocol that has been replaced by SSPI.

No.  Depending on the option, at most you would have to restart the 
service (AFAIK).

Not that I'm aware of.  I put together a wiki page to help get your NTFS 
permissions locked down (http://www.cvsnt.org/wiki/SetAcl), but that 
doesn't address 'hardening' CVSNT.  To disable unused protocols, just 
remove the *_protocol.dll that you aren't using.
