 This is neat. I didn't know about `tel://`.

 What is the purpose of the `-1` here?
 4b65738138aa6b4805151204f4f9e6bfR68 Should this be dynamic, in case
 there's more than one field of the type? There's a couple more hardcoded
 suffixes later in the same method too.

 When concatenating regex I usually use `preg_quote()`. Probably doesn't
 matter here because of the limiter character set of the `scheme`, but
 might be a best practice. https://github.com/paulgibbs/bptemp/compare/6549

 A question: I can imagine a site owner wanting to implement stricter
 validation, such as forcing the phone number format of a given country.
 This can be done pretty well with a client-side library, so maybe it's not
 relevant here. Do you think it's also worth considering a more obvious way
 to do that here as well, without having to register a new field type? I
 guess this'd be a filter on the format?
