RFC-Editor note

Pls insert this IESG note on the front page:

   This RFC documents the Netflow protocol as it was when submitted
   to the IETF as a basis for further work in the IPFIX WG.

   This RFC itself is not a candidate for any level of Internet
   Standard. The IETF disclaims any knowledge of the fitness of
   this RFC for any purpose, and in particular notes that it has
   not had complete IETF review for such things as security,
   congestion control or inappropriate interaction with deployed
   protocols. The RFC Editor has chosen to publish this document
   at its discretion. 

   Readers of this document should exercise caution in evaluating
   its value for implementation and deployment.
   The IETF is working on a standardized protocol in the IPFIX
   (IP Flow Information eXport) Working Group.
