I asked around internally and as a customer of AudioCodes we still use that dissector.

This was originally filed as bug 9569. The situation is

unusual that I really don't know what the best solution is, so I 
figured I'd ask for general comments from the list. The company who 
created and used the TPNCP protocol (and submitted the 
packet-tpncp.c
dissector) wants to reuse that name for a new, different 
protocol and 
are asking us to disable the old dissector to avoid 
conflicts. The bug 
has more detail.

https://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=9569

I just added the following to the bug:
"""
My preferred solution would be to keep the old protocol as 
version 1, add the new protocol as version 2 into the same 
dissector and add a preference to select which  version to 
use (with a default of 2). It doesn't have to be 1 or 2 of course.

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just 
stuff that works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead 
of technology.
