This is the second time in the last little while that a statement like
this has been made...

What is the "official" word on the practice of checking non-approved
data sources, not for inclusion in OSM, but to ensure what is being
included is correct?

I understand the concept, but you are using a derivative of data that
is not allowed.

I can say that I am entering street names from memory, but I'm "Just
checking Google Maps to ensure I'm spelling the name right."

Using non-approved sources to align the Bing imagery is pretty much
the same thing.
