Comment (by jeremyclarke):

 I don't think the source_url method is the way to go. Definitely adds an
 unnecessarily confusing element to the UI and the whole system. I also
 don't think that just adding attribution in brackets like that is nearly
 universal enough.

 What we need is to stop the caption system from stripping out light HTML
 from the caption field. There's no semantic justification for not having
 formatting and in fact there are MANY scenarios where having it is
 important, not the least of which is the attribution scenario which is
 vital for legal reasons.
