If you only have a few pages to do, it might be sufficient to have this meta
tag in your head:

<meta http-equiv="P3P" content='CP="YOUR_CP" policyref="YOUR_REF_URI"'>

I haven't seen this in the deployment docs, so maybe there's a problem with
this method, but it does put the P3P into the header in my testing.
