This would be really useful for the "format as you type" part in dialer/sms/etc wherever you might have to type a phone number
I just switched to a Firefox OS device as my primary phone and imported all of my contacts from Google. I've been receiving many SMS/MMS messages from numbers that exist in my contacts but the messaging app hasn't been showing me the contact names because the format of the phone numbers in my contacts list is not international format.

We could fix this either by fixing this bug, or the related bug 1204621
Hi Tim, we should definitely match phone numbers even if they're in their national format.

However we have bug 1114525. This appears only if you imported your contacts while in roaming condition (or maybe if you had no SIM yet). Can you confirm this?

This bug is very old, I'll close it as it's obsolete now.
