if you publicly use a produced work (which is the indented case here)

4.4.c. Derivative Databases and Produced Works. A Derivative Database is
 Publicly Used and so must comply with Section 4.4. if a Produced Work
 created from the Derivative Database is Publicly Used.

which say, that it does not matter whether you declare geocodes produced
work or derivative db. if this didn't exist, i could declare anything
a produced work (things like any "enhanced" database) and the whold odbl
would not exists.

produced work is always based on a derivative db or collective db (if
they are used independetly)

4.6. restates this.

so the real question is, which part is derivative db (and not whether
it's produced work)
