The idea is for it to be returned with every HTTP response.

They refer to other documents on the site. Some of these documents
may be embedded objects, others not. They may be used for example,
to indicate up front that an entire site, or an entire directory within
the site, follows the same policy. They might also be used to indicate
that a certain directory on the site follows a different policy from the
rest of the site.

It is important to note that a policy does not automatically apply
to embedded content (inline graphics, frames, etc.).
