We could - if there is sufficient support - adapt the recently-proposed
"sub-microformat" pattern, so that:

        <foo class="tel-work">5555555</a>

becomes parsed as a "work-type" 'phone number.

Alternatively (or additionally) we could adopt the previously suggested
"data-title" pattern:

        <span class="type" title="data: work">Phone</span>
