Has it therefore been determined that phone=* and contact:phone=* are
100% synonymous, and no subtle semantic differences exist between the
two? In that case it makes perfect sense to consolidate onto one or the
other. But if there are any perceived semantic differences, however
subtle, then either we find some way to represent that using other
tagging, or we accept that a certain nuance will be lost.
