Very very broadly yes, but actually at that point (whichever licence you're
using) you get into all the hoo-hah of defining "substantial". Realigning
one cable along one straight OSM road is unlikely to be a substantial
derivative, and therefore won't trigger share-alike. Realigning a massive
network along every single road is, and will. It's all fun and games until
someone gets sued. :)
