Continuing this thought... outside of base/ (in policy/protocols/conn) it might make sense to do things that actually "detect" something.  I consider non-obfuscated tunnel decapsulation very similarly to normal protocol analysis.  The rule of thumb is that the scripts in base/ should only be doing protocol logging and state building which is exactly what it sounds like your tunnel.bro script is doing. :)
