When sideloading a file from a URL, using media_sideload_image, the original URL should be stored as metadata automatically.

The reason for this to be done in Core, as opposed to a plugin, is that the reason why individuals use media_sideload_image is to store a local copy of a file. It should, for copyright and fairness reasons, store where it was originally hosted.

The secondary advantage is the sideload can query existing attachments and not sideload the same file twice.
