Well, what I was proposing is that we have a "blank node" style that
lets people type v:tel properties, and a shortcut property for
commonly-used properties like v:homeTel. The advantages of this
proposal is that:

1) It's backwards compatible with vCard 2006
2) But lets people express (and so round-trip) with actually existing
vCards that are more complicated, as earlier VCard let us do.

I thought we had agreement on this. While we can't make it logically
equal using RDF semantics, we can make the namespace document explain
very clearly's what's going on.

Also, +1 on not using URIs for telephone numbers, but just plain literals.
