I doubt just visiting the OSM website without some kind of click
wrapper similar to nearmap.com does would force you to agree with ODBL
for just using the website. On the other hand if ODBL does become
"the" license for OSM you might have to agree to license your future
work under that for anything you submit to OSM, however ODBL
restrictions would only kick in if you want to extend the OSM data and
not upload changes to OSM.
So most people just using rendered tiles, and uploading to OSM would
have no reason to have any difference compared to the current license.
