We definitely want everyone to align on Contact objects.

Certainly. We've had feedback from Mozilla in the past and I certainly hope that we'll have more very soon. There are actually a few open problems with the way in which the Contact dictionary is specified. I think that most of those issues are captured in Josh's brain though, so I'll need to pick it directly. I'll prod him to post to this thread.

Either way  we definitely want to reach broad alignment here.
