It's not too uncommon to do this on academic networks for comparable
short periods of time (days and weeks, not months), at least as layer
3 and 4 data is concerned.  Most estimates of the storage requirements
for the data per se are way too high.  Such data helps a lot during
incident handling.  Furthermore, such networks gather invaluable
intelligence, which helps to increase on the Internet as a whole.

(Just to provide a different view on this issue.)
