Thanks for picking this up, Larry!

My additional comment: I don't like to have too many URL schemes.
If we're talking about phones, there are really 2 things: What we
dial, and what we do when we get there.
If "what we do when we get there" is the URL type, we've got
fax: urls, voice: urls and modem: urls - there are probably more.

We might want to do this once, and say something like:

phone://+47-73-597094/proto=voice
phone:+47-73-596450/proto=g3fax

or

phone:+47-73-5149456,263/proto=voice

(basically emulate the Hayes special dial character set, unless
they have a patent on it)

Just my NOK 0.50...
