This memo describes an extension to the Stream Control Transmission
Protocol (SCTP) that allows an SCTP endpoint to signal to
its peer that it should move the cumulative ack point forward.  When
both sides of an SCTP association support this extension, it can be
used by an SCTP implementation to provide partially reliable data
transmission service to an upper layer protocol.  This memo describes
the protocol extensions, which consist of a new parameter for
INIT and INIT ACK, and a new FORWARD TSN chunk type, and provides one
example of a partially reliable service that can be provided to the
upper layer via this mechanism.
