I just made this Greasemonkey script yesterday:


It wraps TEL numbers in hcards with callto: links, which can be used  
to open phone calls in VOIP applications like Skype or Vonage (I've  
only tested with Skype on OSX).  It has several known bugs, including  
merging multiple VALs within the same TEL, being totally ignorant of  
non-American phone number formats (because I don't know much about  
non-US phone number formats, nor how VOIP applications handle them),  
and not checking to see what tag the TEL is in and potentially  
wrapping a link around something it can't go around in valid XHTML.

But it is, nonetheless, a one-click interface for hcards, as  
requested above.  And as far as my searching found, VOIP is a  
previously unexplored interface for hcards.
