the taps do not provide access to the actual payload
What would a UDP tap do with the payload?  Is this for something such  
as "Follow TCP Stream"?
(It would be inappropriate for a UDP tap to try to interpret the  
payload as a particular type of packet - the dissector for that type  
of packet should have a tap and a tap that only wants to process that  
type of packet should use *that* tap.)
