The XML Protocol (XMLP) WG has decided to close issue 240 [1], which you
originated, with the following resolution.

The XMLP WG respectfully disagrees that the XMLP WG must document how P3P
policies should be associated with XMLP messages in order to satisfy the
requirement that it be possible "to associate a P3P Privacy Policy with an
XMLP message". We believe the requirement is met through our previous
agreement that in principle it is possible to associate P3P Privacy
Policies with XMLP messages. The XMLP WG's charter explicitly states that
its mission is to provide a framework that can support a wide variety of
applications, but its mission explicitly excludes defining the semantics
associated with particular applications. The XMLP WG does recognize the
importance of Privacy, and it suggests sending the question of which other
WG takes on this task to the Web Services Co-Ordination Group for

We trust that this resolution satisfies your concern. If not, please
contact the WG asap.
