An OGL may require specific attribution, in which case that attribution 
has to be added to the OSM licensing page before it is used.

There is a horrible bit of weasel wording that says no rights are 
granted for third party rights which the licensor does not have a right 
to grant.  That means that the council can use an OGL but the content 
could still be encumbered by OS copyrights.
