As the two functions are quite different in intent, I find it not entirely clear, merely from the scope, what's going on.

I'd like to change habits so that people think of "persistent per-packet data" and "per-dissection data" very differently.

I think I crated the original function and I think it has been misused and agree with Guy on this one. The key argument was meant to be the protocol level so that a protocol that got called several times in a packet could retrieve the right data, nothing else.
