Michael, actually a question after I read your message more closely

Did you mean to say "As long as Google does state.."? Because my impression is now that a statement like that would be sufficient to cover the attribution question.

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.

Best regards

Michael
