 @shooper's comment is precisely correct. We have functions for field types
 we store and use out of the box, and phone number formatting varies quite
 widely making a good data validation approach specific to each
 implementation. Including a function that does some things but not others
 is unpleasant territory, particularly once sanitization and
 conversion/transformation are mixed together as per your proposal.
