Yes, you always need a cookie-include if
you want your policy to apply to cookies.
I've noticed that some of the P3P enabled
sites that are already out there are missing
this. They will need to add this or P3P user
agents that use the full policy (rather than
the CP)  will think that their cookies don't
have P3P policies.
