I'd be interested in the source as well...
I think I know the source, it is found in Steven's "The Invicible Warrior" book. I can't recall the exact name of the said Uke, but let me check through the book again.
Boon aka "The mild natured bespectacle BUDO GEEK (TM) "
To AV Mano,
Shihonage was designed suppose to dislocate the arm and break elbow. As that is what it was designed to do, so don't be surprise if that happens to uke. But as we are all civilian, law-abiding and being compassionate and all, there are two ways of doing it:
1) Go full speed but let go ala Hombu style, or raise your hand to ease the pressure and let uke fall on his own safely and gently on the mat. Or...
2) Do the Yoshinkan version, keep uke extended and spiral downwards, thus slamming uke down hard on the mat, but done in a slightly reduced speed to let uke take the fall safely.
Whichever way you decide, more importantly is how you intercept the incoming uke, and that you must practice with full speed.
With respect to the throwing (kake) part, as long as you have taken away uke's balance (kuzushi), you basically have successfully complete shihonage.
