e164 vs. partyNumber aliases

This is an interesting problem.

However, as the E164 alias is a user dialed number, it will include such
thing as "011" for international calls.  However, if the call uses a foreign
gateway, the gateway will not understand "011" as it is expecting "00" to
indicate an international call so it will treat "0" as a national call and
try to send the call to "11+".  The structured values in partyNumber
indication the unique number without any identification or routing
information.  Therefore a number indicated as an international number is
valid anywhere in the world.

I like to see e164 alias being used.  In order for an EP to send the new V2
aliases, it has to know that the destination is a V2 or higher.  How does
the caller know the callee is V2 or higher?  Any thoughts?
