I disagree, you can quite happily remove/comment out the deb-src entries
and I reckon 99.9% of the users wouldn't even notice. It saves
bandwidth, mirror load, and downloading unnecessary stuff to your computer.

I don't have any deb-src entries and I have compiled stuff without any
problem, also if you do do something that requires a deb-src entry, you
will get an appropriate message saying so.

IOW, I advocate leaving them out.
