PRE stands for the Preferences-Category. Categories represent data-items
collected. P3P allows for opt-in/opt-out of purposes and data-elements,
but NOT for data-categories as they are summarizing data collections

This is the same as above. 

So in a full policy, you can express that, but not in the compact
format. In the full policy you have to specify the exact data-items
subject to 'optional'. See
http://www.w3.org/TR/P3P/#Categories
and 
http://www.w3.org/TR/P3P/#DATA

So your first guess was right.. Hope that helps

Best,
