Optimized Profile Descents OPDs

They do. So when ATC gives "Descend via" for the arrival, that authorizes the pilot to descend via the full arrival, adhering to all crossing and speed restrictions as depicted on the chart. Any modification to that call will not only make the pilot comply with the modification, but would cancel the arrival altogether. ATC would have to give another "descend via" to have them continue the arrival.
