It depends on what server you are running and how
you configure it. As explained in
http://www.w3.org/TR/p3pdeployment
you can configure some servers to deliver
CPs in response to only some requests. See
for example A.1.3 for how to do this with
Apache.

Also, if all your cookies have the same CP, then
there is no danger in sending the same
CP on every page. CPs for pages that don't
have cookies are simply ignored.
