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.
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.
