Currently, a fax number will be rendered using Horde_Form_Type_Phone, 
which will hook up to the telephony/dial API and display a dialling 
link. This will not be desirable in most cases.
To prevent this there should be a dedicated Horde_Form_Type_Fax for a 
fax number or any other non-diallable numbers.

I don't think this is really necessary. It's easy to grasp for end 
users that there is something like a common phone field type with 
common functionality. At most I can see adding an attribute/field 
option to disable telephony links.

Subclassing Horde_ Form_Type_phone sounds like less work. Plus one 
could provide different icons for phone / fax / mobilephone fields, 
which would lift usability up one notch.

Currently all icons are cellphones. Application "Astra" contains a 
nice icon for a fixed-line phone that could be used for the purpose.
