Ahem.  Just because _you_ don't do it, doesn't make it "wrong".

Yes, where a whole bunch of stuff has been added from one source (or a 
combination of sources), of course it makes sense to do that on the 
changeset not on individual objects (and editors that show a 
consolidated object history will show source tags from all of these).

However, there may be cases - imagine a road junction that you've 
visited that has changed since the available imagery - where a source 
tag on objects may make sense.  Also, splitting into different 
changesets per source tag sounds like a silly idea...

Best Regards,
