I had a thought in this direction a while back. It was in the context
of randpkt, not fuzzing but I think the same principle applies:

https://www.wireshark.org/lists/wireshark-dev/201304/msg00109.html

Basically it should be pretty easy to script such that it forces
decoding for every protocol over TCP/UDP/etc on a given capture.

There is certainly a lot of code that fuzz-testing currently doesn't cover.
