Licensing it under ODbL is not sufficient to be useable for mapping.
ODbL contains a attribution requirement which is not met by the
attribution we require from our data users. As long as Google does not
state something like "Adding us to wiki.osm.org/wiki/Contributors
fulfills our attribution requirement", its data will be as useful as
many open datasets by German authorities.
