What we meant when we wrote this is that whenever
possible you should use one of the three methods
to declare a policy reference file for each resource...
that is, try not to have URIs on your server that people
can fetch without being informed about the relevant
policy reference file one way or another.

Can anyone explain this?
**************************
When the P3P HTTP header is used as an alternative, servers SHOULD:
 Reference a policy in response to any request:
P3P-compliant sites SHOULD include a link to a policy reference file for a
Webresource whenever possible
***************************************
Does this mean a link tag, or an <a href=""> for user experience only?

Thanks
