I've dealt with three publishers here in Sweden and they are all
extremely careful about the copyright material they print. Sure they
don't understand the CC-by-SA, but they called for legal advice on the
matter. In one case the solution was to CC-by-SA the whole spread, so
I agree that it's not really necessary to release the whole.
 not osm related, mostly Wikipedia
