Furthermore, we are currently doing that on a large scale with our own data.
We are using CC-BY-SA data to verify where we need to re-survey to create an
ODbL database. There are even a whole bunch of great tools that make this as
easy and systematic as possible. So I presume that form of verification is
legal and is not covered by the share alike clause of the license.

Well, perhaps we do need to actually define the term much better to be able
to judge if that is a violation of copyright / the license. If their
definition of verification e.g does not go beyond the definition of
verification of CC-BY-SA / ODbL data, which has thus presumably been deemed
acceptable, then it wouldn't be an extra grant (which wouldn't really be
possible) but simply a clarification as various of the other community
guidelines that have been defined. If in turn this would lead to UMP
accepting to allow to keep their data, that would be a major win for all!
