Re: “if you want to display a tab with all the means of contact, you just
have to look for contact:”

That doesn’t work, because “phone=“ is much more popular and probably
always will be, and  the “contact:” prefix is not used terrible
consistently (is a website actually a way to contact a feature? Usually not)

Keys should be designed for the convenience and ease of use by mappers,
because the time of individual mappers is by far the greatest value input
into Openstreetmap. Database users and developers (myself included) need to
do a little more work sometimes, to give thousands of mappers a little less
work and a little more fun.

I support deprecating “contact:phone” and just using “phone=“
