Yes. My fault for delaying this but now done. Hence Josh' announcement.
I am happy that:
* The provider is aware of what we will do with their imagery and data
derived from it.
* The provider has given their explicit permission to include derived
data into the OSM database.
* The proposed attribution mechanism, adding source to tags and/or
change sets is practical, (the imagery will only be released in the
context of HOT projects). I have also added a new section for HOT
under http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Attribution .
