Actually *every* published map that uses OSM data, including OSM's own maps
must satisfy the attribution requirement.  That's what the BY clause in the
CC-BY-SA means.

Anyone publishing OSM data must provide attribution: "You must attribute the
work in the manner specified by the author or licensor" is what Creative
Commons actually says.  The attribution page on the wiki at
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Attribution would seem like a simple
and convenient way of achieving this.
