Thought about maybe trying to extend AsynK with an org-contacts backend? That'd be ridiculously useful.

I split them up to single lines.

I am afraid that there is no standard (yet).

However, I can give you my personal approach:

ITOLDTHEM_* is used for automatically generating my email filter
rules (spam-whitelist) and memorizing the level of information I
gave out to companies.

ADDRESS_CHANGE_METHOD is used to memorize email addresses, web
pages, or contact information on how I am able to update my personal
information such as address or phone number.

In the next week or so I plan to implement a Python script that
generates an iCal file out of my contacts.org so that my Android
phone is able to import it (including photographs!). Stay tuned :-)
