Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] Network Sorcery and protocol documentation

Recently having submitted a protocol dissector and written a wiki page for it, I was reminded of a very handy web site for protocol documentation that I reference quite often, namely http://www.networksorcery.com/enp/Protocol.htm.  I think the folks at Network Sorcery did a really nice job at presenting the protocols.  The protocols are alphabetized so they're easy to find, they use a common format for describing them, protocols cross-reference each other where applicable, links to relevant RFC's are provided, related SNMP MIBs are mentioned, etc., etc.
Anyway, I personally think the format is somewhat superior to the current wireshark wiki pages for protocol descriptions and would like to see Wireshark protocol pages mimic theirs.  Is it possible to mirror that site's content on Wireshark's site?  And then as we add new protocols, we could use a similar format?  At the very least, provide a link to it from Wireshark?
