The P3P specification group addressed the exit criteria that 
requires specifying the appropriate behavior for a user agent 
that encounters a P3P policy with invalid syntax. The group 
agreed to add the following language to the intro of section 
3.2:

User agents SHOULD NOT act upon or render policy data 
containing a syntax error. Furthermore, user agents MUST NOT 
act upon or render policy data containing a syntax error, unless 
the user has been informed in a meaningful way that there may 
be an error, or unless the user's preferences specify that 
errors may be ignored.

This and other updates are documented on the 
P3P updates page at
