To be clear, this is something that we (as in the OSMF) clearly would
NOT want to happen as it would have the effect of removing the
contractual nature (see ODbL 1.0 2.1c) of the ODbL in legislations that
do not have sui generis database rights. The only thing we are
interested in is the case of CC by 4.0 as an input licence (while CC
by-SA x.x in principle could work too, using share alike data as an
input is a not an option for other reasons).
