Bing layer on source key

Description

In changeset 6565 it was included a way to compute the source key based on the active layer values.
Since the Bing layer is named "Bing Sat", when uploading a changeset the source field also has a "Bing Sat" on it.

http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/search?q=source%3DBing says that "Bing" is much more used.
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:source also says that "source=bing to indicate that the information was added based on a use of bing imagery"

When using a Bing Sat layer, couldn't it get renamed to just "Bing" when computing the source key value?

Good point! :-)

We could either change that in the code directly, or add a separate attribute to the entries of Maps. The latter allows other also imageries to specify a name for the source tag.

A tag in Maps is a proper solution, but it wont propagate to the installed instances, as details of active map sources are only added, not updated.

Good catch. I think we can do both (new tag + special case for Bing when no tag is found in imagery info).

I think Potlatch or ID presets already have such a source-tag.

Instead of a special Bing handling I'd vote for an update of the hidden details of already installed map sources (i.e. everything except URL or name). I already planned something alike in the past but think it newer was implemented. Or was it?
