Technical Summary

The Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) is a reliable
transport protocol operating on top of a connectionless packet
network such as IP. It is designed to transport PSTN signaling
messages over the connectionless packet network, but is capable of
broader applications.

This memo defines the Management Information Base (MIB) module which
describes the minimum set of objects needed to manage the
implementation of the SCTP.

There is one existing nit that we need to fix in an RFC-editor note - 
namely that the SIZE restriction of 115 octets on the 
sctpAssocRemHostName needs to be removed (should be 255).
