Sorry, I should have said more on this. That was the original intended
meaning (to me), listening to Joey suggestions though I think it would
be good to be able to automatically download stuff or browse source code

So, for vcs/layouts where this is possible it should be document which
is the preferred url to be but there so that it's possible, maybe with a
best practice. For other vcs/layouts the value of the field in my mind
should be what I said above: something meaningful for a user so that he
can find the source code.
