Nexus 5: I Put A Spell On You

As I continue to play games with the Nexus 5's stock voice phone dialer, another friend e-mailed me and noted that "Call Home" (minus the space) can be reduced to numbers via the translation key on a phone's numeric keypad to 22554663. This is, in fact, the number that it offers to dial when you ask it to "Call Home". A bit of testing indicates that it's doing that for whatever I speak into the voice dialer.
