I agree with Mounir.
Thing is UA is allowed to do that, but without clear rules, this can be a
If for date and time, where we have a lot of formats and standards for
internationalization, how can UA specify and be no type mismatch, if we do
not have any standard about phone numbers?
I mean, american format differs a lot from brazilian, which differs a lot
from indian, which differs from... you got it.
But it would be great if this kind of data becomes part of i18n packages,
meaning that any user, with a UA tunned to its native language can input
that, and let it do the job, like for date and time.
However, not like date, which is a fixed number, phones can vary a lot from
one region to region in length, and prefixes.
I think this is open to UA devs and RFC writers to take care, but I am not
sure if these statements will be useful someday at all due this lack of
pattern among regions.
