It's OSM that obliges users to contribute CC-BY-SA
and it's OSM that obliges users to contribute ODBL.
But many of us want to contribute PD and do not want
to comply with any CT at all. PD data does not need a
complicated and binding CT as the current one.
And the current situation is not possible to contribute PD data
So the situation would have been much improved if there
were a sign up as PD user with a very simple PD-CT.

I, too, am positively surprised by the speed and diligence with which
mappers all over the place are working towards getting ready for the big
switch. Most had held back initially to give people a chance to
reconsider, but now things are really moving, and with a very positive
attitude at that - it's not "grumble grumble grumble why do we have to
do this" but "we're doing our part to put OSM on a solid legal footing,
cleaning up behind those whom we couldn't persuade".
For this, it is obviously very important *not* to allow any further
CC-BY-SA contributions as those would give people a sense of fighting
Everyone is working to bring the amount of non-relicensable
contributions down to zero; adding more non-relicensable contributions
would not only pull the rope in the other direction, it would also ruin
the spirits of everyone working to fix things.
