The current regex for dutch phone numbers requires either a hyphen or a space between the numbers, while both should be optional. Including patch (please go easy on me - it's my first patch ;-) )

good job bami, works! i was looking for this. Not a typical Drupal patch but easy to implement.

The RegEx is a bit inefficient:

[0]{1} simplifies to 0

[6]{1} simplifies to 6

[-\s]* allows multiple hypens and spaces, would [\s-]? be better for one?

[1-9]{1} simplifies to [1-9]

[0-9]{1} simplifies to [0-9]

[\s]* allows multiple spaces, would \s? be better here?

I am rewriting the whole NL module and will submit a separate patch with this and many other issues fixed.

g1smd, I added a patch that allows a 06 without any spaces or dash. Validation didn't allow 0612345678. Only 06-[number] or 06 [number] (with space).

I have rewritten the enire NL module with this issue and many other issues fixed. The code is completely different to the old code. When the module owner returns, or we get additional committers, I'll submit it.
