I'm not sure how keen Google, who've just spend millions on proprietary data 
for Google maps, would be to sponsor a project that makes the data Free and 
available to all with no constraints.

Even if it were in their interests (which I don't think it is), they might 
feel it would compromise their business relationship with companies providing 
their geodata.

That said, I don't suppose there's any harm in trying.
