ODbL is not compatible with Contributor's Terms, which you agreed to 
when registering to the OpenStreetMap. Even CC-BY is not.

And the licensing is not stupidity, it's a safeguard against issues that 
may arise in ten or twenty years, when a new owner of the data suddenly 
desides to pull an Oracle on OSM consumers.
