WS-Addressing's approach is a bit different. Its roughly like:
    <phone>
        <number>+1613...</number>
        <international-access-#>011</international-access-#>
        <outside-access-#>9</outside-access-#>
        ..
    </phone>

Basically an endpoint reference in WS-Addressing is spsed to have all
the data you need to get to the other end. The actual "address", a URI,
in indeed required, but in many cases additional info may be needed
for the recipient to really understand a reference. In the POTS case, that 
includes quite a bit of info as Mike Champion so eloquently explained.
