It might be of interest to people in some places - especially when there may 
be differences between the costs of making a call to a landline or a mobile.
eg .. here in Sydney if I'm calling a local landline number from another 
landline it is a cheap untimed local call rate.
wheras if I am calling from a mobile it is usually cheaper to call another 
mobile number than a landline.

...also ... there may be a "preferred" number that people may want to be 
used when multiple numbers are available...
(also each number might have times associated with it - when the person can 
be contacted on that number)
