if we wanted to tag specifically that a phone number is connected to a recording then a specific tag would make sense, it was just an example how phone can cover more cases than contact:phone, by being more generic in meaning. I didn’t imply we should make this distinction, or that it is significant (in terms of number of instances), it was an example to demonstrate that both tags aren’t completely identical, still I am ok with treating them as if they were (of course you can still add your phone:recorded_message tag or „answerphone” or whatever, and I would support it, as I see a significant enough difference between a number you call and someone real replying vs. a number that always gets answered automatically, to consider whether that merits a different tag).
