I admit that I hadn't understood that from my reading of earlier versions 
of the protocol. So let me frame another question:
   - "Policy" refers to the current document (i.e. the returned .html)
   - "Prefix" and "exclude" refer to documents on directories *on that same 

   - therefore, "Policy" cannot apply to outside resources such as banner 
ads and their cookies.

So, if all of that is right (and correct me if it isn't), then my question 
is, can the banner ad/cookie mechanism include a P3P header and policy?
