I have tried to present the two different viewpoints in two columns. On
the left is Alex' original version which claims what you summarized in
your message (that geocodes are produced works etc.); on the right is a
version that explicitly claims "A database of Geocodes is a derivative
database by the definition of the ODbL" - which seems to be exactly the
statement that you were aiming at, no?

The "blanks" that need filling are the consequences of this different
interpreatation for the various use cases. I added one for use case #1,
but only an empty column for use cases #2-#4 and #7. I added no extra
column for #5 and #6 because those struck me as identical under both
interpretations but of course I might be wrong.
