Another interesting thing is that facebook doesn't have a issue for 
visibly attributing Wikipedia and Freebase. Scroll down at this example 
page at

So the issue is either our license or them and mapbox not knowing about 
attribution (which i highly doubt since they are corporate members of 
OSMF and been repetitively been asked to comply). We will probably never 
know, since they never reply publicly neither does the board.
