Theoretically we wouldn't need to guess if most OSM contributors want an
attribution or not. There is the alternative "Agree, and I consider my
contributions Public Domain". Those who have selected this do not care about
attribution. However, only a few sysadmins know how many of us have selected
this option because no statistics have been published.
