I'm not a lawyer, but the current TOU seam not to allow it to be used in 
our editors.

It says "use in a non-commercial editor application of OpenStreetMap maps"

JOSM is GPL. That is not non-commercial.
Merkaator is GPL. That is not non-commercial.
Potlatch (2) is GPL. That is not non-commercial.
Mapzen is GPL. That is not non-commercial.

Did Bing want to say it's not allowed to charge users for the 
possibility to use the API? Or it's not allowed to pay users for tracing 
roads using this API? Then you should write it like this.
