That's why the OSI Reference Model has some form of flow control in *all*
layers one thru five. The Session Layer (layer 5) is where the data path is
finally narrowed to a single user, and therefore s/his ability to consume
network resources can be limited there.

There are many good reference works on the OSI Model.
