Is there a source for this statement?

I was under the assumption that in order to contribute data (whether your
own or someone else's) into OSM, the data must comply with the contributor
terms. Although the CTs agree to always give attribution, this (probably)
still isn't compatible with the attribution required by CC-BY and the
"provide a link to the license and indicate if changes were made" clauses
of CC-BY. So my thinking is for data to be added to OSM under the current
CTs it needs to waive these requirements of CC-BY and settle for
attribution only (and perhaps a specific form of attribution).
