The question is whether this is P3P-compliant, not IE6
compliant. But in any case, I'm not entirely sure what you are
asking. The compact policy applies only to cookies and
is irrelevent to what policies you apply to the pages on
your website. As I said before, the appropriate place
to ask this sort of question is the www-p3p-policy-request
mailing list.

Is it possible to access multiple policies(using a different policy for
different pages on the website) using the reference file and while using a
compact policy passed through the HTTP header?  Is this IE 6 compliant?
