I just looked through the Complete Spacefarer's Handbook (working
for TSR does have its advantages...), and I found some relvant
quotes about flying mounts in space, so let me correct myself and
say the rules _do_ say things about it.  I quote:

"Some few airborne creatures can be mounted and taken for short flights
in space.  They include dragons (of all types)...."

"Firs, these creatures have no helm, so they cannot acheive
spelljamming speeds.  They are limited to tactical movement.
They maintain their normal movement rate in standard AD&D
combat but are limited to SR 1 for Spelljammer game combat."

"Thus, flying creatures with maneuverability class A or B are
considered to have Spelljammer campaign maneuverability class A.
Similarly, flying creatures with standard maneuverability C, D,
or E are considered to have Spelljammer campaign maneuverability
class B."

"Later, alone, Belial will curl himself up undere the mountains and
remember Seraphiel, and archangel who fell by his side, who was one of
few Belial had considered a friend."
