I'll post dissectors to wireshark once I've a DLT type.
I've assigned 223 as the link-layer type value.
I haven't looked at this for a (long) while, but we have a bit of a
dissector, and since Reid just prompted me about it, here it is.

My understanding is wireshark doesn't take lua dissector submissions,
but  I'm posting this here in case anybody else will find it useful.
Hmm, I'm not sure that we don't accept Lua dissectors--I think no one so 
far has submitted any Lua dissectors.  I don't see any particular reason 
why we can't--at the very least as examples.
I'd suggest adding this as an enhancement request on 
https://bugs.wireshark.org so it doesn't get lost.  (You should be sure 
to include a sample capture and update the dissector to include a 
Copyright notice.)
