Thank you, Russell, for the BBDB rant (which I quite agree with) and for
giving your current solution based on Org items with properties.

I'm dipping my toes into Org and, for contact data, BBDB seemed the
natural way to go; I'm glad I looked around to find alternatives before
dumping too much data into BBDB. Everyone's responses in this thread
have saved me a *lot* of time and effort.
