I don't think its really worth to try to de de-duplicate the source values.
Its already duplicated in the jdon anyway.
This would be an easy fix anyway, if somebody feels the need to optimize
such queries.

No, I think the source data is really for the user to debug its
configuration.This is really informational in the UI, AFAIK

I would like that indeed. I don't now yet how we can propagate properties
change in real time, given the current data model
