Making a plugin for a protocol that sometimes contains UTF-8 and would like to display the Unicode characters in the packet info.
Is it possible?

Currently, no; fields of type FT_STRING, FT_STRINGZ, etc. are only displayed as if they were ASCII, with all octets with the 8th bit set displayed as escape sequences. At some point we should add the ability to specify a character encoding for strings, just as, for example, a byte order can be specified for integral values.
