When we started importing the geobase data we took the safe approach and attribute each way. The idea being that with all that attribution no one could argue that we are not complying with the geobase terms. However I can't recall if anyone has said that this level of attribution is actually required by the geobase license.
Maybe someone with better license reading skills than myself or Sam can figure out what the minimum level of attribution is actually required.

Is putting the attribution in the changeset tags sufficient to comply with the license?
Is putting the attribution on the wiki data sources page sufficient to comply with the license?
