It is provided by software-properties-common in more recent releases,
and is seeded on server now. See bug 439566.
$ seeded-in-ubuntu -b software-properties-common
software-properties-common is seeded in:
lubuntu: daily, daily-live, daily-preinstalled
Where, specifically, is it missing?

All this is true, but you haven't said specifically why this proposal is
a problem, or why. This proposal *will* make source available without
having to manually install anything. And providing easy access to the
source *is* essential, but this proposal doesn't take easy access away.
Others have said why the current situation is a problem, and
you haven't addressed that here at all, given that add-apt-repository
*is* available by default now.
If add-apt-repository is not available by default, do you object to it
*being* made available by default to resolve this?
