I can confirm that this case is relatively common; CDMA networks in
non-US carriers for example.

I would support a single TCAP SSN -> protocol upward linking list. The
current downward linking (one way) means it isn't even possible to
validate what other dissectors are after your data (at config time, at
least). Is this a generically solved problem? The semantics for all the
protocols linking into TCP/IP for example?
