We can, and as QPACK is a required component of HTTP/3, you'd probably need to support QPACK for that to work.  However, this is an extensible space and your dissector would need to tolerate other types it might not recognize, or that are added by future extensions.  So the fact that there are definitions in other documents not mentioned by HTTP/3 is to be expected.
