I created the dissector while doing other ITU asn1 dissectors in the hope it would be useful, I have never seen a trace whit it or seen a bug report so I removed it from the makefile but left the files to give a grace period before removing it completely.

The same reasoning goes for the asn1 plugin. If it were to be still used ideally it should be rewritten to use the ber accessors. But I think we now provide adequate tools to convert asn1 documents to c dissectors obsoleted the plugin.
