I have not registered at U3 or joined the developer forum but just from
reading the certification page
(http://www.u3.com/developers/technical/certification.aspx), it's not
entirely clear to me if the 2 free submissions would apply to Wireshark
overall or to each version of Wireshark submitted.  If it's only a total
of 2 free submissions, then perhaps it's not worth pursuing, but if they
allow 2 free submissions per version submitted, then it seems like it
might be worthwhile (pending the issues Graeme brought up earlier, of
course).

I don't know U3's business model, but it would seem to me that hosting
freely available tools would attract more interest in U3 applications in
general and would probably generate more commercial sales as people
peruse the other products hosted there as well.  Of course it may be
costly for them to always cover the cost of 3rd party certification for
all applications, but surely a tool as useful as Wireshark is worth it,
right? ;)

Sounds like good news on the PortableApps side of things though.

No, we shouldn't do it. Given the fact that we will time and again find
security stuff we should not limit ourselves to two updates.

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead of technology.
