It was not my intention to imply CC-BY-SA is compatible with ODbL. I did not really want to get into a discussion about ODbL, but to concentrate solely on the CT's.
My intention was simply to draw attention to the fact that agreeing to the CT terms was not as simple as might have been suggested by the text on the sign up page which appeared yesterday, with no warning that there might be issue if you had used some of the more common sources of data currently employed by OSM mappers.

b) Ignoring the Yahoo data, but taking any data that may have had a PD or CC-BY-SA clause that has be used in import, since these are general permissions given and they do not explicitly mention granting rights to use in OSM, I cant possible agree that I have EXPLICIT permission to use them. I have permission by virtue of they are PD or CC-BY-SA, but not EXPLICIT permission to do so.
David, I don't think that CC-BY-SA is compatible with ODbL, nor with the Contributor Terms. If you have added content that is licensed under CC-BY-SA you cannot agree to the Contrbutor Terms.
I'm sure you know that but your statement above suggests that CC-BY-SA is compatible with OBdL and CT. It is not.
