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.
