In the example we had, as I understood it, this is a telephone number
of a person or a company.

So... the "object" is either a person or a company.

And given that, I would say that it isn't "fair" to apply the "fn" to
the telephone number, since it is NOT the name of a person or object.

I do understand what you are saying... that the telephone number if
the object (and not a person or a company)... but I don't think that
is what the website that that came from is shooting for.  Correct me
if I'm wrong though... but seems that the number is suppose to belong
to some person or company.

See ya
