Technical Summary
  This document specifies a Management Information Base (MIB) for the
  Lightweight User Datagram Protocol (UDP-Lite, RFC 3828).  It defines
  a set of new MIB entities to characterise the behaviour and
  performance of transport layer endpoints deploying UDP-Lite.  UDP-
  Lite resembles UDP (RFC 768), but differs from the semantics of UDP
  by the addition of a single (socket) option.  This adds the
  capability for variable-length data checksum coverage, which can
  benefit a class of applications that prefer delivery of (partially)
  corrupted datagram payload data in preference to discarding the
Working Group Summary
