it is far from trivial, because people modify data in OSM. You would have to decide for every object and all its history. Maybe version 1 of a way was imported but then a different user deleted a node from it. Is there still need to attribute the original creator? What if after some time none of the original nodes is still in the way (or in the original place), would you have to attribute to him anyway? etc. etc., this was just an example with geometry, tags also can play a role.
