I think i have made my point that your concept of quantifying data 
fractions is based on a very fragile understanding of the granularity 
of the data involved - not a good basis for any kind of universal 

Yes, you can try patching the holes in this concept by re-defining what 
a map is but at the end of the day to define a relative fraction of OSM 
data use as a quantitative cutoff for an 'attribution light' is just a 
bad idea IMO.
