implies that we currently don't have any way to say “this protocol 
supports calling these kinds of identifiers”. For instance, SIP and 
Skype can call PSTN numbers; the sip.profile on the N900 has the 
following stanza:

[Action call]
Name = ...
VCardFields = X-SIP,TEL
prop-....ChannelType-s = ...StreamedMedia

to indicate that you can call contacts who have either an X-SIP field or 
a TEL field using SIP accounts.

This is related to <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=26866>, 
and I suspect is the purpose of the SecondaryVCardFields
