The answer from ODC seems to be that yes, you can create a BY-SA
Produced Work which is a mash-up of BY-SA and ODbL data, and that it
doesn't make the ODbL data BY-SA, because the data is not a creative
work (and therefore can't be copyrighted).
This is actually quite a brilliant analysis. But it means, in
non-database-rights jurisdictions, that the extracted data isn't ODbL
either (unless you were dumb enough to agree to the ODbL, anyway).
Now I see why Frederik likes the ODbL so much.
