This was unclear. I hope you understand what I am getting at. In terms of
OSM, which I believe this question is directed at, I am saying that *if*
the OSM "data" is not subject to copyright, or *if* the copyrightable
portion of the OSM "data" does not carry through to the Produced Work, then
there is no issue with licensing the Produced Work under CC-BY.
I believe OSMF adopted ODbL on the premise that OSM is not copyrightable.
