I'm having a hard time following this.

When linphone uses the system contacts database - which is perhaps
provided by davx5 - are there issues with contact deletion?

Or is it only when contacts are added *via linphone itself* into the
"linphone contacts" area?  And this area is actually a new system
contacts db, but created by linphone?

It strikes me that it would be far better to figure out a way to encode
the fields that linphone needs in the main contacts, and just do that,
so that they get synced.    Perhaps abuse the 'instant messaging'
field.   And, it would be nice if all sip clients agreed on how to do
