Thats probably a good thing.  'skills' also includes knowing how the OSM
licence works, and clicking on the 'terms of use' link on the page you

People with the skills, who find a copyrighted source like this and want
to import it without checking the licence, are going to be the people
who cause problems for the rest of us.  Its also possible to trace from
google maps instead of yahoo, but doing so pollutes OSM with
copyrighted/derived data, and gives the original creator of that data
some small claim of ownership.

Sorry, just a big pet peeve of mine.
