It does matter since the addressing schemes for each is different. For
POTS you're essentially limited to numbers whereas the actual VoIP apps
use user names possibly scoped by a domain. Differentiating could allow
unruly client developers to include a dialing pad or at least a place to
punch in phone numbers.
