A better and more important issue is that it's a waste of time to

Not really. Once they're sourced, they're sourced forever ...
I'm glad to see you say that.
Jefferson had an 8-year presidency during which a lot of things
happened. An article about any one of those things can quite easily
have a reference to "third president Thomas Jefferson" It follows from
what you say that a source will not be needed in any of those articles,
but a link to [[Thoma Jefferson]] will be sufficient.
