The P3P working draft in Last Call has a single unstructured "street
address" element associated with a postal address.

This does not match ECML (see RFC 2706
<ftp://ftp.isi.edu/in-notes/rfc2706.txt>) which provides three lines of
"street address" or VCARD (see RFC 2426
<ftp://ftp.isi.edu/in-notes/rfc2426.txt>) which provides for embedded lines
demarcations in its "street address" element.  In light of the need for
company names, mail stops, department names, rural route numbers, county (as
in UK addresses), urbanization (as in Puerto Rico addresses (see
<http://www.framed.usps.com/ncsc/lookups/lookup_zip+4.html>), etc., etc., I
believe that provision for structuring of "street address" is needed..

I request that (preferably) the street address in P3P be structures in
"lines" or that, at least, a defined method be provided for internally
structuring it such as using the new line (0x0A) character as a divider.

Thanks,
Donald
