Thankfully worrying too much.

We have the full history of all changes, his edits would not be
carried across (unwound) but the existing data if approved for ODbL
would be carried across.
There is also a plan of action if people are found to be making these
sorts of abusive edits.

There is a full document coming out in a few days (initially) on the
dev list detailing this.
