spec it should probably mention that CC/PP vocabulary
elements can also be represented in a P3P data set -- with
an explanation as to how. You might also note that both P3P and
CC/PP involve comparisons of preferences and policies.

would have the server do the comparison, but we could imagine
other scenarios. Perhaps CC/PP could be used to facilitate
sending P3P user preferences to servers (this in and of itself
raises privacy concerns, but with the user's permisison, this
could potentially be useful).

In appendix F there is a discussion of HTTP request
