Sure that license is what counts. But I am tired of people telling that 
Netherlands are good example of how OSM works. It is good example of how 
commercial companies cooperate with OSM not how good OSM mapping 
community works. I know that converting it took some time but those 
mapping data were provided not as raw GPS tracks rather.

Here in Poland I would never try to navigate from point X to point Y with 
data only from OSM as they are very fragmental now.
