More the latter. My initial (again, brainstorming!) thinking has an
user-modifiable data structure along the lines of the following:

| elisp var                         |org property| ~ vCard equivalent |
| org-contacts-email-work-property  |EMAIL_WORK  |EMAIL;TYPE=work     |
| org-contacts-mobile-work-property |MOBILE_WORK |TEL;CELL;TYPE=work  |

English-language properties for the org property column could be
provided by default, but users who wanted to use non-English property
names could do so by modifying the relevant entries.

Oh 100% agreed! That's why i've started this discussion here, so as to
get input, feedback, and hopefully at least rough consensus, on how to
approach all this. :-)

:-) Sounds good!
