To understand what needs to be done, I ask do we know what "author" means,
exactly? Is it the original creator of a feature? What if others have
edited it afterwards, and there is a mix of license acceptance among these
users? What about nodes and ways with mixed license status? Is this stuff
described (in a few paragraphs at most) somewhere? There's no way I'm
reading through the license debate. I'm sure I'm not alone.
(These are literal questions for which I do not know the answers - I'm
implying nothing at all)
