Technical Summary

   The Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) is a transport protocol
   originally defined to run on top of the network protocols IPv4 or IPv6.
   This document defines two additional policies for the Partial
   Reliability Extension of the Stream Control Transmission Protocol
   (PR-SCTP) allowing to limit the number of retransmissions or to
   prioritize user messages for more efficient send buffer usage.

Working Group Summary

   A WGLC was made in TSVWG, to end July 21st, 2014, with 5 comments. All
   were supportive of publishing a spec. on this topic. The update to the
   revised ID was discussed in TSVWG after the WGLC.

Document Quality

   The document is thought ready for publication. Note the socket API
   information is traditionally included as an informational section within
   SCTP specs. This API is thought to be completely implemented in FreeBSD,
   to be released in FreeBSD 10.1
