[Inf-IT DAVcl] regarding merging of IMPP data

I just noticed that something funny is going on with the IM ID data of my contacts - namely, yahoo messenger IDs (but not Skype ones) are all appearing twice in CardDavMate. The origin of this can be traced back to CardDav-Sync from my Galaxy S2: it sends every IM ID not in one but two different "encodings", like so:


While it certainly can be argued that this is not exactly good practice (RFC4770 that defines the IMPP syntax says nothing about allowing or prohibiting the alternative notation in parallel - strictly speaking CardDavMate being entitled to interpret this as FOUR individual IDs), I think we can safely say it's reasonable to merge any number of instances of the same specific protocol AND same exact ID to a single one when presenting it to the user (reducing the above to only two IDs). Especially since this is already happening with Skype - but not with Yahoo. Could this be implemented as proposed?
