No, we are still in the phase of finding a good design.

I can agree about that it isn't the neatest design I have seen. But from 
an API POV, there is nothing strange with it. A listable Source returns 
a list of Sources, there is no restrictions on that the listed Sources 
should be of the same type or listable.
