I notice that the decode for an SMB2 Negotiate Protocol Request is fairly sparse compared to the decode used for the equivalent SMB1 Request

SMB1 Dialect: PC Network Program 1.0 Dialect: LANMAN1.0 Dialect: Windows for Workgroups 3.1a Dialect: LM1.2x002 Dialect: LANMAN2.1 Dialect: NT LM 0.12 Dialect: SMB 2.002 Dialect: SMB 2.???

SMB2 Dialect: 0x0202 Dialect: 0x0210

In the SMB2 decode, I would prefer to see something like: Dialect: SMB 2.02 (Vista/Win2003) Dialect: SMB 2.10 (Win7/Win2008)

I would be happy to submit a feature request ... but before I do that, would anyone like to push back and either defend the current approach or offer a third path?
