You might be able to link to the more complete information from the
simple content.  There's also nothing wrong with marking up the
simpler content with microformats; it's still contact information,
even if some of it is missing.

I have a vague feeling that there's a more basic problem with what
you're trying to do.  Could you give a link to an example of one or a
couple of these pages?  You can fill them in with bogus data if
there's any confidentiality, and you can use a pastebin if you don't
have a place to host them.
