[OSM-legal-talk] Interesting use case of combining OSM with proprietary data

Today i stumbled across this:
Apart from partly insufficient attribution (which i already contacted
the author about) this is an interesting case example of combining OSM
with proprietary data sets i would like to hear some opinions about.
What is done here is combining road information (and some other data)
from OSM and proprietary data sources (Google) into a raster map (made
available as 'friction surface' under the first link above) and doing
further processing, analysis and map rendering based on that and
publishing the result.
My interpretation of the ODbL here is that this is a share-alike case
that would require the combined data sources to be made available. But
you could probably also look at it differently. I would like to hear
opinions on this. In particular if you think that is legally possible
without share alike how this interpretation looks like.
