The Contacts come under the PIM database, which is accessed (mostly) via JSR75. BlackBerry has their own "extension" to JSR75, but you are free to ignore this and use the standard. You just will not have access to the BlackBerry-specific extensions.
You ask the question "...which doesn't go through the J2ME framework" - it is important to note that the BlackBeryy API's are built on the J2ME framework, so there is really no way to separate them. Think of the BlackBerry API as a layer on top of J2ME.
You can have J2ME without BlackBerry, but not vice-versa.
