Comment (by DJPaul):

 > What is the purpose of the -1

 No idea about the `-1` thing, I assume it's from the original profile
 field implementation pre-2.0. It's used in all other field types. It looks
 like the assumption made was that `bp_the_profile_field_input_name()`
 would be unique. If I introduced this in 2.0, I would need to go look at
 the commits logs and hope I left a clue. You also see `-3` used for select
 boxes, etc.

 > concatenating regex

 Good tip, I'll check that out!

 > stricter validation

 We do have similar logic for, I think, date fields? We copied WP's logic
 from Settings > Reading? We could? I'm not against implementation
 something similar, though the default'll have to be (anything), and we
 could pick a handful of countries' phone number formats?
