Yes, the reason is that nobody has ever made an open database of so many
hand-collected small facts about the real work yet, OSM is a pioneer
there and therefore needs new solutions that haven't existed before.
As Matt noted, there's a growing legal opinion that our current data is
in fact in the PD, as the CC-BY-SA can't be legally applied to it. Is
that the state you want to have in the future?
