BTW: looking on your wiki page you declare:
All my contributions to OpenStreetMap are released into the public 
domain <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/public_domain>. This applies worldwide.
In case this is not legally possible, I grant anyone the right to use my 
contributions *for any purpose*, without any conditions, unless such 
conditions are required by law.
So you declare that you don't matter what happens with you data: 
everybody can do anything he likes. This means the OSMF can take all 
your data and publish it under any any licence they want.

Question: which problem do you have with the ODBL? You can accept the 
ODBL/CT and additionally check the PD flag => that's exactly what you 
want according to your Wiki page.

BTW: to set the whole OSM database under PD is not capable of winning a 
majority => no choice.

Best regards,
