In my opinion that's what CC-BY is all about. You're allowed to change
it, but you still need to tell the name of the licensee.

It's common GIS practice:
When you've got data from catastral office and you're editing it, you
write: "(C) catastral office of $city, edited by $user". That's
nothing new: *BY* has always been there, just *CC* is new.

Let's assume CC-BY does work for geospatial data(bases), it's easier
to discuss in this level.
