I reached out to Greg Payne, Director of Land and Spatial Information,
Topographic Data, Imagery and Mapping, DNRM in December 2018 (in case
anything had changed since my prior correspondence), the reply was:

 The Department’s position has not changed since your previous enquiry.

So unfortunately we're in a stalemate, OSMF says we need a waiver, DNRME
says they don't believe we need one. So we can't currently use DNRME's CC
BY 4.0 open data within OpenStreetMap unless either OSMF or DNRME change
their stance.

I'm not taking a stab at DNRME over this, they are free to no agree to the
waiver, it's their call.
