I believe the contributor terms are too broad.  I answered the poll in
favour of moving to the ODbL, but failed to take into account the
contributor terms.  The upgrade clause in the ODbL should be sufficient
for any future licensing, and if the change is away from that, I expect
as a contributor to be consulted about it.
