In addition to those, there's also the possibility of an explicit
permission for OSM, as I mentioned in my first mail. I hope someone with
more legal knowledge than myself can properly answer Vincent's question
about the wording of that permission.

But yes, this issue is not limited to ODbL.

There's nothing special about Vincent's proposed import from this legal
point of view. In my opinion, we should indeed refrain from importing
data under such licenses as a general rule.

That such imports have been performed in the past is true. At least in
my case, however, the reason why I didn't raise similar objections back
then is simply that I didn't pay close enough attention.
