Do I understand correctly that you want to deploy a full P3P 
implementation including the compact format? Because only deploying 
compact policy format headers is not allowed by the specification and 
dangerous from the semantics one spreads with the tokens alone.

I've never heard of any problem of older browsers with the P3P Header 
(that can also carry the location of the Policy Reference File).
