There was a specific question from a AU community member to NearMap if
the option should be removed. They said yes. <-- Third hand, I was not
part of the discussion.

My understanding of NearMap's point of view is they have some rights
over the contributions made by OpenStreetMap'pers who use their
imagery. I also understand they have no issues with the new license
just the Contributor Terms. It is an awkward position. NearMap is also
a user of OpenStreetMap data.

Discussing of options and solutions with NearMap continues.
