Adding such source tags to a changeset seldom makes sense.
Most of my changesets are a mixture of local knowledge, surveys, gps,
photographic and video. I even occasionally use satellite imagery...
So the source data needs to be fine grained on the elements themselves.

Furthermore, when updating an element, I can see any source tags right
there. I am not normally going to all the faff of looking up the
history, finding the changesets and consulting those except for unusual

Of course, changesets need to have some overall source infomation, but
that is necessarily coarse except for small cahnges perhaps.
