How could I add CC-BY-SA derived data if I use GPS traces, audio  
recordings of names, or imagery like Yahoo or Bing? The only way I  
could see this happening would be if I was to deliberately go out of  
my way to add a CC-BY-SA source (either other imagery or a data  
import). Have I missed something? (An example would be nice!)

I am still contributing to OSM. I also have a FOSM account (same  
username as OSM), but I haven't used it yet. I've just finished adding  
my recent Flinders Ranges trip, hopefully all these will get copied to  
FOSM. I'm currently working on some audio recordings from an earlier  
trip to Wyangala (near Cowra), then I'll probably have a break as I'll  
have gone through all my current data, although I might do some work  
on adding new ways from Bing imagery.

I'll take this opportunity to thank Nearmap for their generosity to  
allow data to remain in OSM.
