P3P Problem, validation fails at Policy URI check

I'm experiencing problems when implementing this privacy policy thingy. I 
used the IMB P3p tool to create the XML files but the stuff doesn't seem to 
work and I have no clue why. The Validator stops ath the Policy URI check 
without throwing an error.

I call my reference file (p3p.xml) from the header of a php file, which 
seems to work correctly. The reference file points to policy.xml#default --> 
the policy with name = "default" in that file. Should work, right ?

(p3p.xml - reference file)
<META xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2002/01/P3Pv1">
<POLICY-REFERENCES>
    <POLICY-REF about="~Good Path~/policy.xml#default">
      <INCLUDE>/*</INCLUDE>
      <COOKIE-INCLUDE
        name="*"
        value="*"
        domain="*"
        path="*"  />
    </POLICY-REF>

</POLICY-REFERENCES>
</META>

(policy.xml - policy file)
