I noticed that the latest vCard draft specification [1] requires the 
content of the TEL property to be of type URI with tel scheme.

Operator supports this and hCard allows it, but if I understand

would require the phone number to always be represented with an HTML anchor:

<a class="tel" href="tel:+14154075856">+1 (415) 407 5856</a>

Thoughts? should I add this to hCard issues on the wiki?
