Confused about Cokin P-Series Holders & Adaptor Rings

Hi guys,

I've finally decided to purchase a graduated ND starter kit.  Since I'm no pro, I can't justify spending the money on the Lee system, but the Cokin system seems affordable enough.  I know there are other brands out there but up here in Canada, we pay a premium just for second-tier merchandise (of everything), meaning that it's hard enough to find Lee & Cokin products for sale (and much more expensive).

My question is about the P-Series holder.  Is that size universal?  On and other retailer sites, they seem to advertise P-Series for 56mm, 67mm, and 77mm lenses.  Am I correct in assuming that they've simply bundled the standalone filter holder (standard P series) with the lens adapter rings (in their various sizes)?

If so, I might just get a standard P-series Cokin holder, three adapter rings for my 67, 72, and 77mm-sized lenses.  On top of that, I'm thinking I might go with Singh-Ray ND filters that I'll have to order from somewhere else.
