To illustrate where this discussion has gone awry please consider a
rendering using 10 data sources all licensed on ODbL terms (in real life
it is not uncommon to have multiple dozens of different sources, so 10
is not a high number).  The ODbL does not, nor does any other open
licence, intend for such a product not to be possible because of the
practicalities of  providing simultaneously visible attribution of all
sources all the time.
