I would have thought their site Terms & Conditions exclude the use by
OSM, specifically:
"You agree not for yourself or through or by way of assistance to any
third party to distribute, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble or
otherwise deal in or with the Website or materials therein or otherwise
commercially exploit such material or content otherwise than as
permitted by law."
