This document specifies a Management Information Base (MIB) module
for the Lightweight User Datagram Protocol (UDP-Lite).  It defines 
a set of new MIB objects to characterise the behaviour and performance 
of transport layer endpoints deploying UDP-Lite.  UDP-Lite resembles
UDP, but differs from the semantics of UDP by the addition of a
single 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 datagram.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
