I asked @owenboswarva on Twitter who is an active voice whom i trust on
open government data issues, and he said this:

"IMO the only significant difference is v3 explicitly permits re-users
to list multiple attributions via a URI or link. ...the differences are
mostly just tidier syntax. If you are happy v2 is compatible with OdBL
(IMO it is) then v3 is also."

I could imagine that OGL-3 has imported OS ODL's clause on
sublicensing that caused incompatibility with ODbL, which would make
OGL-3 incompatible with ODbL.Do we have confirmation that this is not
the case, i.e. that OGL-3 and ODbL are compatible?
