 From the vCard spec [1]:

"The profile permits the use of non-standard types (i.e., those  
identified with the prefix string "X-") as a flexible method for  
implementations to extend the functionality currently defined within  
this profile."

Apple uses X-AIM for AIM addresses in Address Book vCards.  I would  
think x-tty would be the most obvious class name.
