similarly, in India, phone-A to phone-B rates (incoming as well as
outgoing) depend on where phone-A and phone-B were originally signed
up for, the plan that both were signed up for, and where each of them
is at the time of making the call.  However, does all of this belong
in the vcard?

Would you, for example, put down, "preferred from 0900-1700IST, except
on weekends and between the 5th and 15th of May, unless you're signed
up with plan foo on provider bar" as meta info for the number?
