Not exactly what you're asking for, but there is a type for URI references
which should be easily restrictable using a regular expression pattern to
mailto:  only.   One might argue that to be a somewhat more web-centric
solution, but I'm not sure it meets your needs.  I'm not aware of anyone
who has created a standard name for such a type in a type library, but it
might be a good idea.
