But I'm getting the build system error "services only work on branches"

Is this just a side-affect of a package link that I shouldn't do for
source packages, or a bug somewhere else?

That's a limitation of the way source services are implemented
currently. Source services run on the commited files. Unlike
branches with contain the complete filelist, links just contain
the _link element and some patches. That's not enough to run
a source service, so they are forbidden for links.

This limitation existed since source services were added, it
has nothing to do with the recent change.
