Added a hidden SSID (wlan_mgt.ssid) to be able to filter on the ssid.
Why do you make this a hidden item? I'm not a big fan of hidden  
items as
it makes it almost impossible for the "uninitiated" to know about  
All tagged parameters are currently added as  
"wlan_mgt.tag.interpretion" and I did not want to add another visible  
entry to display the same value as "Tag interpretation" for SSID.  I  
think we should cleanup the ieee80211 dissector to add uniq abbrevs  
for all tagged parameters.

I will cleanup handling SSID as binary in WLAN Traffic Statistics, as the code you are pointing at is used for this.
