It's rare, but probably a good idea. Sometimes if I move a few nodes
on an existing way that has a source tag, I'll end up with
"source=yahoo,nearmap" or something.

I also use "fixme" tags like "fixme=needs survey" when I'm uncertain
about what I can see on the imagery. It's often hard to tell whether a
laneway goes all the way through or is blocked mid way.
