You could also put yourself a slightly different challenge: map
between the org-contacts-format and an carddav server that you
establish as a backend on your phone.  E.g. google contacts is a
carddav server, I think.

I use DAVdroid for syncing my calendar and my contacts with my
OwnCloud and it very, very well!  I sync my agenda with my OwnCloud
using org-caldav, which works great except when you have multiple time
stamps per heading.  For contacts I tried Asynk to sync my bbdb
contacts with OwnCloud, but I was using too many fields unknown to it,
and my contacts got messed up.

Mayhaps you already thought of this approach.  I think it is more
future-proof.

I would go for whatever properties are supported by Carddav, if
there's a limit.
