Dear all,

We know that the IANA considerations 
<> mentions "expert review" 
for the IPFIX registry <>.
This BGP community is actually a special IPFIX Information Element as 
this is the first one based on RFC 6313 
<>(basicList, subTemplateList, 
So it deserves special attention, review, and potential documentation as 
its own RFC.

Regards, Benoit
