Lua is used by different kind of developers, and if Wireshark loads the code
and displays the fields correct then it's easy to assume that the arguments are
ok.


But when I look at the previous implementations (older than 2.4) I find that
ProtoField.new gave an error on base.HEX and ProtoField.bytes just ignored it
because base.HEX was given as "Description of the field." (I haven't checked
why this did not fail) I'll withdraw my suggestion about adding backward
compatibility.
