I also believe that there will more eu-wide harmonisation of everything
(including copyright), so it's better to make a stand as soon as
many of EU institutions are already releasing a lot of data (EEA, ), so
the direction is more-less OK. but could be better.
also note that odbl is strongly dependent on eu database directive.
