IANAL but my guess is that you might decide on every individual contribution
how to license them. The smallest aggregation factor with OSM is
the login/username so as long as you accept the CT on one login and 
not accept on another the latter ones contributions may not be relicensed.

More interestingly - Why on earth cant i contribute although i stated that
all my contributions can be considered CC0/Public Domain? Why do i need
to accept the CT, granting some spooky special rights to some folks 
i dont know and who definitly not act in my name.

Nutzung von Atomenergie eine Brückentechnologie und unverzichtbar. Ein
Ausstieg in zehn Jahren, wie noch unter der rot-grünen Regierung
beschlossen, kommt für die nationale Energieversorgung zu abrupt.“
