Before I forget to send some feedback...;)
a) I thought the proposal, time ago, was to add this on top of,
and not as a replacement, the original p3p1.0 mechanism, so
not having nasty backward-compatibility issues altogether.
Is this the case, or now the trend is to go with a replacement?

b) Second point: at p3p1.0 time, the schema solution was banned out
by all our major implementors, ie Microsoft, IBM, and Ericsson.
If this goes all the way thru, please be sure to get an ack
(or at least a "can live with") from the big players before
proceeding.

There were another tech points on compatibility when passing from
the p3p1.0 way to a schema-way, but whether exposing them is
worth really first depends on the answer to a), so I'll await for that ;)

Thanks,
-M
