That's data denormalization. What do you then do when the two sources of
information don't agree? Also, do you actually need the json at all
without knowing where it came from (not just from which api call, but
which system and at what time)? I can't imagine such a situation.

Finally, when you need to save a whole lot of json outputs and need to
know where they come from, you traditionally put that information in the
file name, no?
