You mean for imports in particular, right? I often have manual editing
sessions with multiple sources (e.g. my gps trace, the bing aerial and
my local knowledge), and so there's a good reason why many people
might apply different source tags to objects even within a single

The reason I bring this up is that I've heard people say that the
source tag should only be on changesets - and I agree it makes a huge
amount of sense for imports, but I wouldn't like to see people
generalise that inappropriately beyond imports.
