they are part of the contact-proposal. I mentioned them to point out,
that even if everyone followed this proposal and added "contact:" to
some of the tags, this wouldn't improve overall consistency.

yes, like they put their name and address. That's why I pointed out
that nevertheless in OSM noone so far used contact:addr:street.
