I think it is best in both cases just to agree with the data owner what constitutes reasonable attribution for the medium, and that we can deliver it.

Ref CC-BY-SA3 - it seems to be fairly explicit on these pages: 

 	* http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Contributors#Australia

I think the attribution should not go on the source tags of the
nodes/ways, but instead on the changeset and the wiki. Chris
