But that acts for a single unified AddressBook; to address what I think
you want, we would need to be able to have one AddressBook per source
(as we had in the first drafts of the documents as it happens).

I don't think what we have in the spec can be tightened into something
workable for a source-aware contacts API, but if you can provide a
proposed addition to the spec that you think would fit that requirement,
it would be help figuring it out.
