For a lot of packages I've put some sort of git web view URL into the
Source: field and a descriptive homepage into the Homepage: field.

I don't think this is a very strong reason not to drop the Source:
field, since the descriptive homepage will usually have a link to the
git web view.  But I thought I'd note my experience.
