Even an  extremely literal reading of the ODbL does not support that a 
condition of use is that users are actually aware of what they are 
using, just that the attribution notice is "reasonably calculated" to 
make users aware of the source. It would be bonkers to request such a 
thing and the licence doesn't do so.
