Am I correct when I say ODBL is more like LGPL than GPL? Afaik it is
ok to use OSM data without any obligations on your work, as long as
you don't mix the data. Would that be correct?

And to the topic. It might not always be easy to enforce the
share-alike clause, but I really like the fact that we have it and may
enforce it if necessary. I don't see why this should render OSM non-free.
