It seems to me that it would be nice to be able to disable/enable
specific dissector and heuristic tables.

For example, this would be useful when investigating tcp level issues
for which tcp payload dissection is not interesting.

All the different protocols which run over tcp wouldn't need to be
disabled to just show the payloads as 'data" (and not show things like
"malformed" because some dissector mistakenly tries to dissect data).

The SCTP dissector has a "dissect upper layer protocols?" preference for this purpose.
