My guess is that they are looking also beyond the German border when
choosing their data provider ;-). Not everywhere our map is superior to
Google's. And secondly, they might have errors like we do or even more, but
noone was ever fired for choosing Google maps, while you have to be more
couragious to choose an open project where everyone can edit anytime.

cheers,
Martin
