Maybe the I-D is not as clear as it could be.

Values of this syntax represent telephone numbers using
the E.123 format encoded in a printable string.  The
printable string "---" simply doesn't represent a
telephone number.  (Maybe it represents "no telephone
number", but that's not a telephone number.)
