I would still be using data that is not ODbL licensed together with data
that is ODbL licensed to create the layer. How that layer is being used by
mappers to focus their remapping efforts is not in question here I think -
the data is not directly used to create new OSM data. Anyway, I should
probably ask over at legal-talk.
