Sorry that it was not clear enough.
SOURCE_NONE fields are the fields that do not require object info.
By "technical fields" in this particular commit I mean fields that
will never be filled. So, it's a good idea to fill such fields with an
empty string and do not take them into account later (when we are
thinking whether we need to get and parse an object or not). I guess
we do not need to mark these "technical fields" in a special way: we
don't need this information. Moreover, some of the fields that I
filled with an empty string here, sometimes have non-empty
representation, and I changed nothing for such cases.
