That section was added on request. I have forgotten the reason.
But I think it was discussed on the mailing list.

The original ASN1 can be found at:

The check in message was:

make mms bitstrings easier to read

Hi, this is my new mms with some changes in order to display some data in
binary instead of hex.

Excuse me because is not a diff from the repository, but I don't know how to
create a diff.

I also have the compiled packet-mms.c and packet-mms.h if you want it only
mail me.

I'm not familiar with the protocol, but it looks like all 512 are hard 
coded into the dissector.  Does the bit-string need to be only 8 bits 
long?  Do you have access to the standards documents by chance?
