I think there are two points to consider:
* whether serviceId is the right way to make that information available
— I'm fairly sure it isn't, and that we would need an AddressBook
interface to do that sufficiently well
* whether that feature needs to be part in the v1 of the spec — I
personally think that while the use cases that require source-awareness
might be interesting, it's more important to finish a first version of
the spec that is already useful without that source-awareness than
getting bogged into the potentially difficult details of that aspect;
that's obviously a judgment call
