I am here.

What exactly "move to Bluetooth specific global configuration profile" means?
Now using Wireshark is flexible: I open Bluetooth logs or eth-logs in another
Wireshark session. Also remember about possibility to see Bluetooth protocols
over USB. After move I must any time switch to Bluetooth profile? Also must copy
defaults colors to Bluetooth profile, because network payload is possible over
Bluetooth interface (TCP, etc.. see btbnep [BNEP protocol]). Last small thing:
Bluetooth payload is also possible over network payload (for example WiFi/WLAN: partially by btamp and bt-oui).

I think current state of comfortable. If there any performance or stylish reason
to move it?

Why is there a lot of Bluetooth colors? Bluetooth stack is quite hermetic, every
protocol is some specific functionality. Colors significantly increase
readability. I will use Wireshark to analyze Bluetooth payloads and fixing bugs,
so you can assume that colors are verified in practice.

PS. Please remember that I am open to all suggestions or new ideas. So, I do not miss something here?
PS 2. There is last miss color for AVDTP. Could anyone see patch 4: https://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7893 Good news: There is no new color to add in near future. That is all.
