While this doesn't have any direct bearing on my accepting the ODbL/CT
it might be useful for me to explain my edits regarding HCC data.

Over the years I've noticed several mappers quoting HCC as a data source
including at least one who was active in the early years of the project
and was aware of the copyright rules. When I raised the issue I was
informed that it was okay to use HCC data but I've never seen any
written proof of this. I therefore chose not to use HCC data in any of
my edits but refrained from deleting data as I had no proof of

IIRC the changesets you referenced were in response to edits by

source:ref tag to clarify which bits of data came from which datasource.
