It would be a useful feature to only use the Address resolution block of a
pcap-ng file and/or a specified hosts file for addres resolution. A typical use
case would be traces from a private network(IMS networks Mobile service
providers etc). Exporting the Adress resolution block to a hostfile or merging
it to an existing one could be nice too.

local hosts file, not remote DNS lookups. See Gerald's comment to
