I like that. I reckon we should take it further. Those who do a lot of  
mapping and coding get extra voting points and bragging rights on  
legal-talk. Those who just pontificate about how other people's work  
should be licensed... don't.

Of course, Frederik, 99% of OSM editors are made with either your  
editor or mine. I reckon that makes them a derived work from our  
souls. Our souls are clearly oriented towards the public domain. W00t,  
we just freed OSM.
