Why not, make a list of all people who want public domain, then
download the 16GBs of planet dumps and diffs necessary to get all
history. Analyze all history; extracting the nodes and ways that are
contributed PD only, thus creating a subset of the planet dump which
is PD. I agree there are license problems with this, but the intent is
more acceptable, and it would be interesting to see.
If you want to discuss license go to legal-talk.
