In my mind what makes these examples particularly egregious is how they
find room for image logos. If there's room for a Mapbox or Tomtom logo
like in the images above, there's room for (c) OpenStreetMap
With maps like this, I would expect a "reasonably calculated"
attribution to have OSM with at least the prominence of other companies.
