Flow telemetry is extremely useful, but it isn't really suited for looking at things like jitter and delay, and out-of-order packets.  It can be used to identify loss in many instances, as well as communications relationships, bps/pps, source/destination distribution, macro-level application behaviors, statistical and behavioral anomalies, DDoS attacks, et. al., but you really need packet-level classification/inspection to get the level of detail you mention.
