I just realized that I got confused.

There *is* a requirement D-AR020.1 which comes from the D-AC020.1 CSF.
The current text reads:

  + D-AC020.1 Is it possible for a service consumer to know the
    privacy policies of the service provider(s) that it is going to
    deal with? (eg. hooks for P3P)

  + D-AR020.1 It must be possible to advertise privacy policies for
    Web Services

I think that there are two problems:
- a Web service provider should advertize its privacy policy.
- a Web service provider must be able to access them.

It seems to me that D-AC020.1 talks about the second point while
D-AR020.1 addresses the first one.

The rewording discussion for D-AC020.1 and the above comments go in
the direction of transforming D-AC020.1 into the following D-AR020.2:

  A service provider MUST disclose its privacy policies (in manners
  that can be easily understood?) to the consumers.

Roger may come up with a different proposed wording[2].
