Admittedly I'd like to leave the legal stuff to someone who has better
expertise on this topic ....  If it's just about _storing_ the data in
whichever form, I think we have multiple opportunities to offer.

Nevertheless I'd be very careful about this clause:

So, _if_ OSGeo would provide public hosting for such a dataset, I guess
they would be liable to ensure that users are going to obey the given
rules ....  and I don't have the slightest clue how this would have to
be accomplished.

 Unix _IS_ user friendly - it's just selective about who its friends are !
