All three OSM usage policies ( https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Acceptable_Use_Policy ) have been updated to include a section pointing out that use of these services is subject to our Privacy Policy (http://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Privacy_Policy ) see for example

Interesting, I assume you are both aware of: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM_tags_for_routing/Access-Restrictions which covers just part of the problem space. For example to do it properly you need to normalize vehicle types, add rules for standing/parked vehicles and so on. Simon Am

IMHO mobile devs tend to substantially exaggerate the screen real estate scarcity. Two to three sources as text lines is clearly doable, and you don't really need to have separate links on the main screen itself, just show a common attribution screen. And: -you- control how much you want to show

IMHO it boils down to one extra API call per edit made in a maproulette context(on top of a minimum of two API calls (if the editor is doing things properly that is actually three), so likely it is simply a bit of added noise, depending on how expensive
