no response header, no consent recording(legally). It's as simple as that. And 
P3P did not have a response header as the protocol was just 180 degree 
opposite of the DNT protocol. 
Given that there will be no consent-recording, a SHOULD may be enough. But the 
Specification MUST give clear information about why the response header is 
needed to avoid the misunderstanding above.
