Ok. But I still don't understand why you say that in the case of 
voluntary work, a single tel with an unspecified type cannot be assumed 
to be of type 'work' if an org is present.

The vCard RFC recommends the use of "work" to indicate a telephone 
number associated with a place of work.

The case above seems to qualify: voluntary work... is work and the place 
of work is WMBC and the phone number provided is clearly associated with 
WMBC. So it seems to me legitimate to assume that the tel provided are 
of type 'work' even though it is not explicitly stated in the content.

I still don't get your point. Can you elaborate?
