Here are a few comments for your P3P 1.0 Last Call Working Draft [1].
Please feel free to ignore them or use them, as you see fit.

HTTP 1.0 -> HTTP/1.0
HTTP 1.1 -> HTTP/1.1
web -> Web
user-agents -> user agents
User Agents -> user agents
e-mail -> email
safezone -> safe zone
"data schema" is two words in [2] and one word elsewhere.
In 3 places, P3P 1.0 has a space between P3P and 1.0; the other
occurrences have no space. Maybe all occurrences can match.

Since the Working Group(s) is listed in Appendix 8, you could reword
references to it, and remove them in the spec proper. For people
outside W3C who aren't familiar with W3C Process, the WG probably has
no meaning. For example:
     The members of this Working Group expect that in the
     future, there will be demand for the creation of other
     data sets and elements.
     There will [may] be demand for the creation of other data sets
     and elements in the future.

Why is the well-known location /w3c? I'd think of /P3P (or /privacy).

 From here on, a clause number is followed by a quote and then a
suggestion. Comments are in brackets [].

"...However, to limit the scope of when an absolute URI
     should be considered "embedded", we make use of the HTTP
     Referer header:
["We" is apparently hard to translate; see
This sentence could read:]
