As a produced work ODbL doesn't even come into it.  It could be licensed
under any license whatsoever.

Unless ITN is in the business of rendering maps from the data themselves
ODbL doesn't come into it.  The issue for them would remain that the
rendered map of Baghdad would be licensed under CC BY-SA.  ODbL changes
nothing in this scenario.
