I know this, but let's not confuse the matter by calling this "second 
rate attribution". It isn't. It's no attribution.

These new guidelines say that, for 480px+ screens, hiding OSM 
attribution behind a click is not acceptable. That's unambiguous all we 
need. Fussing about what other logos might be on the map is a diversion 
and is not supported by the ODbL.
