Implementing P3P 1.1
Developers are encouraged to implement P3P user agents, policy generators, and other tools based on the P3P 1.1 Last Call Specification. This specification is stable. The Last Call only revealed minor typos and errors in the ABNF. We hope now to get more feedback from implementers.
Once P3P 1.1 will go to Candidate Recommendation, the P3P Specification Working Group expects to develop validation tools and a testsuite.
