I think it could be useful in some scenarios.


contact at whatever.org - "Contact - Company"
contact at google.com - "Contact - GTalk"
123456789 at icq.whatever.org - "Contact - ICQ"
Metacontact - "Contact"

Rationale: every sub-contact can have some
explanation/specification/location specified in name

Perhaps it would not be very useful for most people, I don't know. I
personally would use it in this way.
