Some from Tagwatch Australia:

60 source:location
46 source:geometry
7 source:existance
3 source:area

Some others from OSMdoc (in descending order of frequency):
source:position
source:outline
source:location
source:existance
source:geometry
...etc.

But I think this deserves further thought, anyway. I can see only two
possible solutions:

1) Use source:<X> to refer to geolocation, where <X> is some string
that is never going to be used as a key on its own, or
2) Redefine source=* to refer to the geolocation of the feature only
(as opposed to all tags of the feature)

I don't particularly like either solution...
