The assessment given under that link has nothing to do with imports, it
refers to 'compatibility' in the sense that you can license rights in
adaptations you make to a work under one license with another license.
But it also explicitly mentioned that the resulting work is still
subject to the first license:
"an adaptation is always subject to two copyrights. When those
copyrights are licensed on different terms, it can be difficult for
those using the adaptation to sort out their obligations. In this
context, someone using the ODbL-licensed adaptation would have to
comply with both the ODbL and CC BY (to the extent they make a use of
the adaptation that implicates both copyrights)."
So please do not try to sell this as a carte blanche for relicensing
CC-BY work under ODbL.
