FLAME uses an unofficial protocol number (0x4040), any tips on how to get an official IANA number would be highly appreciated.

Ethernet protocol number I assume you mean. If so this at least used to

Yes ethernet protocol (it's below IP level), I didn't realise that IEEE also handled the portnumbers. I'll check the ieee website to see how it works, tnx!
