But Giles, 

as P3P contains no wallet, it does NOT know about requests, so a P3P 
declaration is NEVER a request for a particular type of data, but 
rather a statement on collections. 

If the actual form collects only a name, but the P3P policy declares 
also the collection of political opinion, you can't help them as they 
overdeclare stuff. 

I think a P3P user agent has to assume, that the data declared is 
collected and used for the goals expressed in the purpose section. If 
you agree that this is true, the sentence below is so obvious that it 
is not worth including (obviously it "may" rain at a certain point in 
time, even in ISPRA :)

So I don't think we should change or include this. Your brain is PRIMed, 
that's the issue here ;)
