Interesting.... looks like HTML 5 "microdata" is defining vCard  
"predefined types":

   http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#vcard

They are following the RFC closely and "typing" values such as phone  
numbers:

My new <span itemprop="type">home</span> phone number is <span  
itemprop="value">01632 960 123</span>.

(Talk about confusing the marketplace!)
