If the list would be longer than can be accommodated in a single IPFIX 
message, then some mechanism would need to be defined to allow the list 
to be exported.

Ideally this should be a generic mechanism allowing the export of any 
large IPFIX content. However, it might be simpler to define a mechanism 
that's specific to the export of long lists.

There may be several solutions. eg, it might be a compression mechanism 
allowing the content to fit into a single message. Or the content might 
be carried across multiple messages.

If you feel it's an issue - especially if it would block your current 
work - then please start the discussion in the OPSAWG because the IPFIX 
WG is closed.

Thanks,
P.
