Use of website tag containing utm_source=OSM

I’ve noticed that Central Apartment Group is putting UTM parameters in their website links that allow them to track traffic coming from OSM data sources. For example, Melbourne Knox Central contains https://www.melbourneknoxcentral.com.au/?utm_source=OSM&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=OSM.

This isn’t a big issue, but I’m sure we don’t want other brands catching on and adding this to their links in OSM. It looks like most UTM parameters for other URLs have already been removed in other countries.
