Yes, but you're talking to them on the basis of our current licensing
situation. You are not, I assume, asking anyone who agrees to give us
data whether they would also do this under some other license ("tick
all that apply"). So the best you have is a gut feeling whether or
not they would perhaps agree with another license or not, but since
nobody is actually asking them, nobody knows.

But you do say that the value of OSM would decrease substantially if
other entities withdrew their cooperation, or did I get this wrong?
> But to say the OSM is not a political project is naive.
I thought it was when it started, maybe I got this wrong, I wasn't
around then. Maybe anything you do is political, in a way.
