What do you mean by "ESRI as a base map" do you mean the "ESRI World Imagery" available in ID and JOSM? ESRI's map layers are not allowed, just like Google Maps or Google Street View which must not be used as we don't have the copyright permissions to use these.



That statement does not seem to match the information on the wiki?




Using Esri imagery in editors

The easiest way to do this is to select the “Esri satellite imagery” layer as an option in either iD or JOSM. 

Legal permissions

Esri and its imagery contributors grant Users the non-exclusive right to use the World Imagery map to trace features and validate edits in the creation of vector data. Users that create vector data from the World Imagery map may want to publicly share that vector data through a GIS data clearinghouse of its own or through another open data site. This public sharing could be achieved through ArcGIS Open Data <https://hub.arcgis.com/datasets?q=buildings>  or the OpenStreetMap (OSM) Initiative. For ArcGIS users that want to contribute such vector data to OSM, Esri provides applications and services directly accessible from ArcGIS platform. Users acknowledge that any vector data contributed to OSM is then governed by and released under the OpenStreetMap License (e.g. ODbL). 

Except for the additional limited rights granted above, any and all other uses of the World Imagery map remain subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Esri Master Agreement or Terms of Use, as applicable. Esri and its imagery contributors retain all right, title, and interest in and to their respective imagery data contributed to the World Imagery map.

Attribution should be in either  <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:source> source=Esri or  <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:imagery_used> imagery_used=Esri tags on a changeset.
