To prevent IE6 from blocking the cookie you need to put
a full policy and a compact policy on mystats.com.
Putting a full policy on mysite.com is a good idea too
(and it will allow IE6 users to view your "privacy report")
but it won't prevent IE6 from blocking your cookies.

See http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/a/javascript/2002/10/04/p3p.html
for more information.
