I don't know what the general view is.  However, I believe the P3P language
is dangerous for corporations and government agencies to use.  Those
organizations may want to disavow any liability or legal responsibility for
P3P stuff.  They may find it safer to state all privacy matters in full,
plain English so as to avoid misunderstandings in court.  See
