I think it was 80n who, in an older discussion about this, pointed out
that it may not be helpful to focus on the *intent* of someone doing
something. Someone might make an SVG file that contains the full
original OSM data, but without the intent of extracting data, and
someone else then uses that as a database. But I guess we don't need to
get all upset about this because if a database is made from the Produced
Work then ODbL again applies through the reverse engineering clause...
