A website for instance is not primarily a means of contact, sometimes it might not be suitable at all for contact purposes, but still there are generally good reasons to add website tags (further information and context).

But that is not how those tags are used!!!
How many of the people who tag contact: actually check if it is a 
contact? How many tweet the comany and see if they get a reply? This 
tagging is pretty much impossible to get right.

Overall I only see that this in some way might be usefull for phone and 
email. But I think it's better to assume phone= is used for some basic 
contact number and then use other tags like phone:emergency= or 
phone:reception if we want to tag more.
