[OSM-legal-talk] Appropriate License For Supplemental Data

I had another licensing question for the OSM legal gurus. :]

I hope to release supplemental data for my OSM mapping projects in an
effort to improve the quality of the data and to make it more
palatable for traditions GIS systems. Part of this supplemental data
will be digital photographs of mapped features, digitial photograph
descriptions, the actual coordinate data (waypoints) used for the
mapping, and information on the data collection missions used to
create the OSM data.

Does anyone see a problem with releasing this information under the
same license as the OSM vector data? What about using a different
Creative Commons License? Would this create a conflict?

Thanks,

The Sunburned Surveyor
