Section 10, pg. 39 says:

   [...]
|  IPFIX Templates tend to increase the information content per record
   by not requiring the export of irrelevant or non-present fields in
   records, and the technique described in [RFC5473] also reduces the
   export of redundant information.  [...]

It should say:

   [...]
|  IPFIX Templates tend to decrease the information content per record
   by not requiring the export of irrelevant or non-present fields in
   records, and the technique described in [RFC5473] also reduces the
   export of redundant information.  [...]

Notes:

Rationale: arguably s/increase/decrease/ .
--VERIFIER NOTES--
The text seems to be correct. Usage of templates increases efficiency by increasing the amount of information carried by a record.
