Isn't that where the produced work comes it?
If we find a way to combine CC-BY-SA and ODbL data in the rendering
process where the ODbL data has already ceased to be a database when it
comes in contact with CC-BY-SA data, then we're ok.
Provided that such a point exists. One could argue that in order to be
meaningfully combinable with CC-BY-SA data, ODbL data still *has* to be
a database, whether it is in the form of a bitmap or not... ;-)
