After discussion with Rigo, I remove my formal objections but I still  
maintain my issue about this chapter.

1. I would first remove (and, are strongly encouraged to).
    We are trying to teach people and specifically companies that  
it's not good to create a specific URI for a specific feature. Many  
people have always excellent reasons to do so, but I really think  
that we should not encourage this.

2. We should first give all the possible methods to achieve the  
feature and as the last choice (if no other possible choices) to rely  
on the WKL.

3. the P3P specification mentions it too. A Website is not a domain  
name. It can be a subpart of a domain or even a collection of URIs on  
different domains. I would encourage you to review and cross-check  
your specification with
    See also the message of Mark Nottingham about it
