mls table can hold 256K entries at 93% efficiency, so you end up with  
about 239K flows total.  No packet-sampled control of flow creation,  
so the table is likely to be overflowed in production edge situations,  
leading to non-deterministically skewed stats.

No logical OR of TCP flags throughout a TCP flow - can't classify SYN- 
floods, RST-floods, et. al.

No stats on dropped traffic.

         Unfortunately, inefficiency scales really well.
