This hits the heart of this particular aspect of the issue:
ARIN IP policy should not be restricted due to vendor specific limitations.
protocol limitations are a different story, but just because a short-sited
vendor takes an easy path to market, for his product or service, ARIN should
not conform a policy around his product limitation.

So... you are depending on a vendor supplied system?
When (not if) NetFlow changes and/or you migrate to
a vendor that does not support NetFlow, you expect
your systems to continue to work?
