As of April 1st only accounts that agree to the new CTs (contributor
terms) will be able to contribute to OSM, while the CTs suggest OSM-F
will attribute data donors, there is no such guarantee that down
stream users of the data will be required to do the same, so many data
sources will possibly be removed from OSM-F's database in the near
future, or reverted shortly after importing.

CommonMap would possibly be a better fit for the ABS and other such
bodies as they operate under a cc-by license and have no plans to
change, ever.
