Not sure if you rely on vCard as some kind of "standard". It is
attempt to globalize the contact keeping, but I don't find it good,
not at all.

It is way too complicated. It tries to encompass everything possible
in one file, file which is probably not related to other files at all.

Only relational database makes sense for complex contact management.
