I have no idea what a BBDB file is but I do use org-mode to manage my contacts.

Each contact is a heading then I keep information with one data field
per line identified with a letter. This is useful for generating compact 
for my planner folder.

A: Address
H: Home phone number
W: Word Phone number
B: Birthdate
M: Mobile (cell) Phone number
E: Email address (not used much since email addresses live inside
    my Thunderbird or Gmail account.
F: Fax 

For example:

** John Smith 
A: 200 Pacific Highway, North Sydney, NSW 2070
H: 9433 7645
W:908 75431

Notes about the contact go here

I used to structure the contacts under major headings of Family,
Friends, School, Work related, Financial, Restaurants,  but I am going
to rework this using org-mode tags for various categories. A useful tag
would be for Christmas card lists/
