I don't see any evidence that "most" OSMers act this way.
Even if there are some people who strongly believe that adding the source
to changesets is better, how can they "deprecate" the current method of
adding source to objects?

>From my experience most mapping sessions involve changes and additions made
to a wide variety of objects with a several sources used. Effectively
requiring a  new changeset for each object edit makes complicated process
significantly worse.
