In fact, the map data is strongly protected under copyright, even in the
United States.
Please see the summary of legal research posted to the legal-talk
mailing list (I will
also be happy to send you the full report from the two US attorneys I
employed to look
into this question).  So 'stay with CC-BY-SA' is a fully viable
alternative, especially
since upgrading to later CC-BY-SA releases does not require any
relicensing exercise.
