So it's a won't fix because relying on is_possible_number does not work either
because it's way too easy to input invalid number with it.

The thing is that people having those phone numbers do not even realize their
phone number is not a French one. I guess they will learn it once they will
input it in something that use phonenumbers.

Note that this is not true: a phone number that has been formatted is not
valid. It has been parsed but not validated yet.

I don't know how to be more clear than "the phone number is not valid but
parsed any way because it's dialable".

Which is how I thought phonenumbers works but after reading its code it's
false. In fact phonenumbers parse any number as long as it looks a tiny bit
