So what am I not understanding?
That almost nobody uses composite tvbuffs, so they aren't well  
debugged and well supported? :-)
For one thing, there's currently no support in the display code for  
having a field correspond to multiple discontiguous regions of a  
packet.  Something such as that would probably be useful (for example,  
in some protocols there are fields that are pointers into a data  
region, in which the real value of the field is contained; if you  
select such a field, you might want to have the pointer *and* the data  
to which it points highlighted).
That support would have to be added.
