I do not think that a plugin doing a mere background display should
automatically insert *anything*. Leave this to the user - the WMS plugin
doesn't automatically add "Landsat" either.

The user can decide that himself. (And if he should decide not to tag
something "source=Yahoo" then who are we to tell him otherwise?)

Current policy is to leave the source in place, but I have on occasions
already removed source tags on nodes when I made big changes and it
seemed wrong to blame the original source for my work ;-)
Again, don't force anything on the user. We're not doing that in other
