No. The issue has been discussed a lot in the German Forums and on the 
talk-de list; the document you quote is not a sufficient license for 
importing the data.

If I see this right, Paul Norman has had a few comments for you on this 
list on the 9th of November last year, to which you never replied; one 
of them was the question whether or not you have discussed this on 
talk-de. If you had discussed this on talk-de you would probably have 
been told the following:

The document you quote contains an attribution requirement that cannot 
be met by OpenStreetMap. In particular, it reads:

"Users of the data have to make sure that all attribution and other 
legal remarks that come with the data have to be visibly linked"

The German community has attempted to clarify that requirement in direct 
contact with the government and it currently isn't compatible - the 
government essentialy wants their attribution under every product that 
uses their data, and this is something that we cannot give them. The 
best we can give them is naming them on our copyright page but they're 
not currently happy with that.

Now I am not sure if you have received any *explicit* permission to 
import that data that might override the GeoNutzV document, but the 
GeoNutzV in itself is not sufficient legal basis for importing that data 
into OSM.
