We do ask them to recognise osm when PROVIDING the results to others, a 
slightly more expanded attribution which has been mentioned elsewhere in this 
thread is no more onerous and what people do with the data in private is 
entirely up to them.

What I'm probably asking is a simple little addition to the more standard 
display tools? Certainly the links being followed ARE from those tools!
