I say again, this is not an issue with imports only, and should be
discussed in a broader context. Having said that, I accept the red
herring for the moment, and say that I would leave source tags unchanged
unless I am adding information from a new source, in which case I would
concatenate it with the rest.
Example in my neighbourhood: I sourced the outline of a new hospital
wing "source:survey" after using my GPS. New imagery became available,
so now it's "source:survey,Bing" (or would have been, except that
someone else got there first).
What about Bryce's suggestion source:pkey? I've never seen that before
aand don't know what it means, but it sets off the original history
(which I thought was the basic idea) and is certainly popular.
