Peter, I agree it would be much easier to use OSM metadata under CC0, and I
might even be able to change the interface to show CC0 for the Item
namespace, but we may have to rewrite all of the description text. If the
community is OK with that undertaking (or if a short one sentence
description does not result in a violation), I will be happy to make that
change.
