[foaf-dev] foaf phone and tel URLs

I was reading the tel: spec
It looks like their definition of a tel URI is context dependent in
many cases. Ie. that is not what I would call a URI, understood as a
Universal Resource Identifier. Of course some people want to think
that URIs are "Uniform Resource Identifiers", but well that breaks a
lot of web conventions. If one has to take the context of where a URI
is asserted into account to understand its meaning, then it is not
very useful in any setting where information needs to be merged, most
of all the semantic web.
Should we limit the tel URIs of foaf:phone to ones that are Universal,
ie useable from anywhere on the planet? Or should one specify an
:me foaf:phone [ from [ geo :France ];
[ from [ geo :IbisHotel ];
No, I don't really want to spend time right now thinking about this.
Perhaps the vcard people have. It may be worth a note... Sorry if this
has already been discussed before.
