Hmm, I kinda like this. It seems a bit verbose but it's better than
having multiple values per properties (IMHO).

Though, if we adopt this scheme, we would need to add some helper
bindings/functions so that we don't have to fill this by hands.

I'm not sure to understand what you mean. Could you give more details
and maybe an example?

What is `org-collector' and when does it happen?

I've done a quick test and the 0 appears in `org-contacts-db'.
