The P3P spec states:
"In P3Pv1, compact policies contain policy information related to cookies
(cf. [COOKIES] and [STATE]) only."

I take this to mean that the only information being described by compact
elements and tokens, then, is information collected by or contained in
cookies. 

As such would this then mean that these tokens are not intended to describe
other information collected on the site through active mechanisms such as
registration and opt-in unless such information is collected by or contained
in a cookie?
