Yes, I would. They don't mean anything without some external information
about the protocol in use, e.g. "this is Portuguese speech".

Of course, as humans we're quite good at guessing the protocol from the
content, because there's usually enough redundancy in the message, but only
from a limited range of protocols that we happen to know about.
