My choice of Navteq was purely for illustration here, and the whole 
thing is a thought exercise to find out whether it would be sufficient, 
from an ODbL perspective, to release the very last database in my 
processing chain, rather than something from earlier on.

I wasn't interested in Navteq licensing terms but in ODbL. Sorry for not 
making that clear.
