I'm not an expert in this issue.  I'm not sure if the fact that Header
doesn't add the header to redirects was a conscious design decision or a bug
or neither.  You can try to get more info from the development list if you

But my first question would be, why do you really need that?  What
functionality is failing because you can't add headers to the redirect?

If the problem is only the cgi script, you can easily solve it by just
having your cgi script send the P3P header itself.  (I haven't tested that,
but I think it should work.)  Of course, this won't change other redirects.
For example, your server also does not send the P3P header for
trailing-slash redirects.
