that a really really really bad translation table...

why are 0, 6, and 9 left out?

that's just the table... how about providing a few numbers and show how their
flow through the table could result in 000 so others can see what actually
happens and how?

eg: 61-2-9727-7775
1st line strips 61-2 so the number is 9727-7775.
valid local number?
but we continue... 4th line changes 2 to 0011-2 so the number is
970011-27-7775.
valid local number?
valid domestic number?
valid international number?
but we continue... 7th line changes 5 to 0011-5 so the number is
970011-27-7770011-5
valid local number?
valid domestic number?
valid international number?
but we continue... 8th line changes 7 to 0011-7 so the number is
90011-70011-20011-7-0011-70011-70011-70011-5
valid local number?
valid domestic number?
valid international number?

AFAICS, the only one that is valid is the first part that strips 61-2- off the
number... the rest of the translations are all invalid which tells even more
about the table being bad... with that table, the NC cannot be called and
neither can any other local or domestic numbers... remember, dial translation
is a single pass through the table...
