And the ODbL allows produced works that include BY-SA/BY data. OSM could
use this fact itself to keep producing BY-SA maps including
institutional datasets that haven't yet been relicenced.
Over time, either institutions will relicence or they'll stick with
unsuitable licences. In either case, people can still use their data
with an ODbL OSM.
