The problem is if someone doesnt like it, its easier to take OSM to
court than google.  If they out-fund OSM in the legal stakes and won,
they could set precedent which they could use against larger mapping
groups like google.

Maybe Im just paranoid about the whole privacy and intellectual-property
deal, but Id rather play safe than sorry if adding data could
potentially open OSM up to any liability, as I believe all mappers
should be.
