This problem exists for any tag. Where does the localization for a 
crossing come from? Gps / aerial? What is the date of this ?
I don't imagine that we triple all the tag to have source+date just in 
case someone doesn't read changesets when he thinks that an object needs 
If he doesn't read changesets, will he pay attention to your source tag?
In my edit, I delete often previous source tag.
Because if I modify an object after survey, a previous source=bing for 
example on an object no longer say anything usefull.
I don't add source tag on object for the same reason.
What would be useful is to have a link beside each tag indicating the 
last changeset that touched it.
Or maybe a josm plugin can parse the history of the object
