It _is_ economically rational to contribute to OSM even if there wasn't a
share alike license.

This is the point of the matter and where we miss each other.

It's economically more than rational to contribute to a non-share-alike OSM
(or other open source/data projects). On the flip side share-alike
introduces complexities that clearly disincentivize contributing.
