Dear Lui Lui Wong, 

You are right. I hadn't the operating system to try that out
until now. This will change soon. I now have the confirmation,
that yes, unfortunately IE6 takes only compact policies for
automatic decisions on cookies. It reads the full policy only for
the "privacy report" function. I hope Internet Explorer will be
able to read full policies in a next version as the expression
power of compact policies is so limited.
