The LWG discussed this in tonight's call. We'll need a different signup 
notice with the ODbL, but for now we'd suggest to change the wording as 

"By creating an account, you agree that all data you submit to the 
Openstreetmap project is to be (non-exclusively) licensed under this 
Creative Commons license (by-sa)."

Any comments?
