Exactly.  If you are not forced to upload under the new CTs (e.g. your
account was created before they were mandatory for new users and you have
not voluntary agreed to them) there is no harm in continuing to upload your
data (unless you have a problem with CC-BY-SA, of course).  As has been
stated numerous times there will be a last CC-BY-SA planet file with all
data before the data is relicensed.  Your data won't be lost if you don't
agree to the new CTs.
