Certainly sounds worth considering.

That's a vCard rule.

I think technically a hCard @class="tel" without a type should be
converted to something like:
TEL:02076115040 and the consuming application default it to 'home',
but Outlook doesn't like vCard TEL without a TYPE, so most converting
apps will insert the default type explicitly.
