That would punish everyone, even those apps that adhere to the policy. I see
no reason to prevent access to an app which just mimics the browser and
shows a limited map area, uses throttling and caches those tiles for more
than a week.

Besides, this would not really help OSM spread its word. I'm sure there are
better ways of dealing with offenders.
