Me either, but this idea is documented:

"May also be used as a namespace prefix to specify the source of a
single attribute"

I think this is a good way for mappers to contribute constructively
even when they're not 100% sure (particularly in areas like Aus with
fewer mappers per sq-km). It makes it easier for mappers like you to
"retag" when necessary, because then you DO know whether they have or
haven't "had more than just the imagery to go on".
