Something doesn't become "licence washed" by being copied from a 
differently licensed source to a CC0-claimed one.  The actual text of 
the claim at the bottom of 
https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Main_Page is also somewhat 
different to just "CC0".

Best Regards,

(taking as read the copious amounts of prior discussion on this - the 
different jursidictions that OSM and wikidata/wikipedia are based in and 
the likeliness (or lack of it) of any claim by wikidata/wikipedia 
against OSM)
