The Partially Reliable SCTP (PR-SCTP) extension defined in [RFC3758] provides a generic method for senders to abandon user messages. The decision to abandon a user message is sender side only, and the exact condition is called a "PR-SCTP policy" ([RFC3758] refers to them as "PR-SCTP Services"). [RFC3758] also defines one particular PR-SCTP policy, called "Timed Reliability". This allows the sender to specify a timeout for a user message after which the SCTP stack abandons the user message.
