Not quite true. openmoko-contacts allows any format (in fact, the field
format is free-form). However, openmoko-messages does not attempt a
fuzzy match on the contact information and the SMS information, which is
why they don't match.

Also, I don't think anyone uses the international codes unless they are
dialing international numbers, so this bug is of interest to everyone,
not just people in USA, Canada or Mexico!
