	Title		: Load Sharing in Stream Control Transmission Protocol
	Author(s)	: A. Al et al.

Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) RFC2960 [1] 
specifications utilize the possible multiple paths between the 
sender and receiver for retransmission of lost data chunks and as a 
backup for the primary path, in case of primary path failure. 
Other than that, all the data chunks are being sent on the primary 
path chosen by the SCTP user during the association initiation. 
This memo describes an extension to SCTP that allows endpoints to 
use the multiple available paths for simultaneous data transmission. 
The extension maintains SCTP congestion control on each path, so as 
to ensure fair integration with other traffic in the network.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
