iD editor does not require providing information on "data source" of t

I have just started using the iD editor, and at the end of my edit, before uploading the changes I am suppose to provide changeset comments.
However, I remember that when using JOSM, aside from changeset comments there was also the line stating:

"specify the data source"

Is there are reason why the iD editor does not have this feature? Providing information about the source of data?

iD provides details of the imagery used in the changeset details automatically.  I suspect it's part of the ethos of iD being an "entry level" editor; trying to be as uncomplicated for new users as possible.

The "imagery" is the satellite imagery?
