Looking at the imports catalogue (
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Catalogue ), there seem to be a
number of imports that have an explicit licensing of "CC-BY-SA or ODbL" and
thus sound like they fall into that category (e.g. plan.at or "Afghanistan
Roads"). So they would be compatible with the OSM license, but not the CT.
In addition, it is imho not clear that not some of the many imports listed
as "Attribution" licensed wouldn't fall into this category, too (rather than
in category 3 as CC-BY).
I thought that the new CTs were supposed to "fix" this issue by only
requiring people to give the "full" rights they them selves own and then
vouch for that the data is also compatible with the current licensing. But
it sounds like that clause was dropped again in CTs 1.2.4? (At least that is
how I understood the recent discussion on legal-talk). So we are back to
nothing is compatible with the CTs other than a PD (like) license?
