I'm thinking the disks will have to already be low-level formatted with
DEC's RX50 flavored format though.  If they're brand new generic DSDD 5.25
floppies, you won't be able to newfs them right?

See for details on John Wilson's PUTR.COM.  It runs
under DOS on PCs, but allows one to format floppies as RX50s.  It would be
nice to have something like this under NetBSD/vax.
