No. It seems to fulfill a short-term request but it is going to fail soon.
Because as soon as any extra requirement appears (and they usually do), you
are stuck. Whether it is the leading "+", additional digits in parentheses, a
different international digit grouping, or the separation of
country/city/local parts of the number. Especially the latter would be fun,
because you would have to calculate the full-form "number" from individual
parts... in Germany we have city code with 36 digits plus local "numbers"
ranging from 38 digits. Hey, and what about vanity numbers...

Try a more solid approach. Even though we call it a telephone "number" it is
not a numeric, like every computer likes to treat it.

Good luck,
