Just to answer myself: While it might be interesting, the datafiles have
a copyright that is "incompatible" with Wireshark's.
From: http://www.inacon.de/ph/data/copying.htm

GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE

While Wireshark is GPLv2+, we would force the prepackaged stuff to be
distributed under GPLv3.

Btw, is GPL really appropriate for documentation? Wasn't the CC family of
licenses specially created for such stuff?

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