The LWG has added a work item for 2019 to update the guidance on
attribution. The major part of the existing texts were written in the
ramp up to the licence change in 2012 and are now over 6 years old. 

Lots of things have changed massively since then, be it the scope of OSM
usage, to what kind of devices are used by the majority of users and it
is obviously high time for some updates. And we will include guidance
that we've previously given, but which may not be really documented
anywhere. For example that in many circumstances "click to hide" is
acceptable, but not "click to show".

So that there is no confusion about this, any such guidance will never
be an exhaustive list of all what is compliant with the requirement of
our licence (for Produced Works), just a list of what we have deemed to
fulfill the terms and can safely be used:

However, if you Publicly Use a Produced Work, You must include a notice
associated with

the Produced Work reasonably calculated to make any Person that
uses,views, accesses, interacts with, or is otherwise exposed to the
Produced Work aware that Content was obtained from the Database,
Derivative Database, or the Database as part of a Collective Database,
and that it is available under this License.
