You wouldn't see "data.gov.au" in a German map extract of course.
I just wasn't creative enough to add data from one spatial area :)

"(C) OpenStreetMap, Vermessungs- und Katasteramt Dortmund,
Amt für Geoinformation, Liegenschaften und Kataster Bochum"

That's common practice in the real world.

Oh come on, that's no valid argument. A script can handle this and
output the source of the data imported into this area. Nobody would
need to analyse the data on its own.
