What I dislike about this scheme, is that it adds an extra layer of
nesting that is unnecessary for most protocols. Each layer of nesting is
an added opportunity for messing up the yaml, which is very strict on


Is redundant for example.

There are a few protocols we support currently that have need to specify
ipproto: dns and smb.
