I think this is an unnecessary complication and we should trust in the 
selective powers of Darwin here. As a consequence I'm more leaning towards the 
definition from Alan Chapell. We should not proscribe too many things, because 
otherwise, you would require a full P3P document to be sent over with your 

Suggestion (but I'm fine with Alan's too):

If information is given, this information MUST be accurate. Services MAY 
indicate what information they collect for what purpose. To obtain consent by 
this mechanism, services MUST provide enough information to allow the user to 
make an informed choice.
