I think it's nice that the Royal Mail have chosen to use OSM for the backdrop to their site for Great Britain Golden Postbox listings to celebrate Team GB successes in the current Olympics:

1. I think a certain Attribution clause is missing[1]
2. I think they are merely pointing to the OSM main tileserver (tile.openstreetmap.org) - this doesn't seem in keeping with the OSM Tile Usage Policy[2]
