The Cadastre josm plugin does something like this for the Cadastre
data.  There is an option which when set will ask you before upload
whether you want to auto-tag the source for newly added items.

I'm not sure how you'd implement it, but you could do something similar
but more generic linked to the WMS plugin.  Something like if a WMS
layer is active, ask whether to auto-tag the source key for newly added
items before uploading.

Java is my least favourite language, so I'm not really the person to be
thinking about implementing this - unless of course nobody else is
willing to.  It shouldn't be too hard for a Java programmer, all the
necessary code is already in place it just needs reusing.
