No, because they've agreed that licensing their data under ODbL is not a
breach of their original licence.  That means that once it is under ODbL
it is simply a matter of whether DbCL is compatible with ODbL, which I'm
assuming it is.

I other words, once the data is licensed under ODbL, the OS OpenData
license is irrelevant.
