Section 7.2 says:

  If a forwarding router cannot determine consistent n-tuples for
   calculating flow hashes, data streams are more likely to end up being
   distributed unequally across ECMP and load-shared links.  This may
   lead to packet drops or reduced performance.

It should say:



The paragraph seems to belong to 7.1 (ECMP and load blanacing) since it is not related to the subject in 7.2 (ACL and filtering). But there is a very similar paragraph in 7.1 so the best solution is probably to delete the whole paragraph.
