You're saying that a movie file containing bits of OSM data and bits of 
other data, in a way that they cannot be separated from each other, 
might still be a collective work?

According to that logic I could produce a printed map that is based on 
an OSM map and has proprietary data printed into it and still claim this 
to be a collective work... actually I wouldn't object to this being the 
case but until now I believed that project consensus was this would 
clearly make a derivative, not collective work.
