RFC 5102, "Information Model for IP Flow Information Export", January 2008

Note: This RFC has been obsoleted by RFC 7012

Section 5.2.10, appA says:

Each bit represents an Information Element in the Data Record 
with the n-th bit
representing the n-th Information Element.

It should say:

Each bit represents an Information Element in the Data Record,
with the n-th least significant bit
representing the n-th Information Element.

Notes:

A misunderstand arose as to whether bits were assigned in host order or network order - so clarify that the bits are assigned from the least significant to the most significant, ie right-to-left rather than left-to-right.

Moreover, this clarification applies to IANA's IPFIX registry.

NB RFC 8038 re-uses this definition for mibIndexIndicator. Consistency between the definitions is desirable.
