Hey, now that's not fair.
The reason I suggested to LWG that they drop the relicensing option from the
Contributor Terms, and limit future options to CC-BY-SA or ODbL, was
precisely that: a spirit of compromise.
Personally I'd love OSM to be PD, yet I suggested a scheme to LWG that would
rule out OSM _ever_ being relicensed as PD. "Compromise" is probably too
mild a word for that.
 ODbL is defined by its maintainers Open Data Commons as "Share-Alike for
data/databases", and contrary to misinformation, _does_ have an attribution
requirement on Produced Works. It is a By/SA licence and will remain one.
