Different P3Ps on one domain

Good morning!!

At my company we write an application that is the online banking tool for Canadian Credit Unions. We also host it. 

Right now, I have to implement P3P policies for these CUs. Or rather I need to implement test P3Ps on our test box. 

Here is the problem. 

Each of our credit unions will be hosted off the same URL (typically www.memberdirect.net) and we distinguish each CU by an entry in the query string that gets passed around. For instance the login page for two different credit unions would be:

www.memberdirect.net/login.jsp?inst=/someCU
www.memberdirect.net/login.jsp?inst=/bc/someotherCU

now if I put my p3p policies (which will be different for each CU) in the well known location, I'm probably going to have problems. I'm assuming that my querystrings will not make it into the request for the policy. 

One thing that has come up is the possibility of using Apache's URL rewriting so that instead of making everything dependant on the inst value we would have virtual hosts like:

SomeCU.memberdirect.net/login.jsp
SomeOtherCU.bc.memberdirect.net/login.jsp

but our operations guys may balk at that. 

Does anyone have an idea how I can do this?
Adam
