Sounds good to me.

Checking sources is not that good imho. There's a bunch of packages that
use the same sources as other official/AUR packages but provide
completely different features (e.g. extract an SDK from the source
tarball). If there was something like that, there should be a manual
filter or something to automatically ignore such packages.

Sounds good, but as you said before, all packages should be checked
before removal in any case.
