However, I&#39;m not sure if normative language is correctly here, because use of a time is an implementation detail; important is that the packet is declared lost after the threshold time. I guess a timer is the only sensible implementation but we could just say:

&quot;... a timer is set for the remaining time.&quot; 
or 
&quot;... a timer should be set for the remaining time.&quot;
or
&quot;... timer should be used to declare the packet lost if not acknowledged within the remaining time.&quot;
