basically the only license situation which doesn't create any kind of
problem is with licenses without any obligations (cc0, PD), because even
attribution has problems (not only that we cannot guarantee downstream
attribution for every single source on every map printout or similar, it
also limits us in our choice for another "free and open" license if we ever
should consider changing the license as foreseen in the CT).
