Active Directory (Server 2008) Attribute/Object Naming - Change possible ?

Greetings.  On the "General" tab for our Staff OU, there is an "Office:" section.  This translates to "Location" in the Exchange Address Book.

I'd like to use this section for phone extensions, as indicated below.  Is it wise to change the object name in AD from "Location" to "Extension" ?  If so, what's a good way to go about this ? ADSIEDIT ?  If you know of some documentation, that would be great.

Thanks much.
Stephen

My questions were "is it wise ?", "how to go about doing it ?", and "some documentation ?" I'm familiar with ADSIEDIT, as I mentioned it in my question.

I'll split credit with Pankaj.

There is a field for IP Phone could you not use that?

ADSIEdit.msc is a good option to manage objects and attributes in Active Directory. By using this, you can have view of every object and attribute in an Active Directory forest.
