Open_Database_License and OSM contributor terms

I have some questions about the ODBL

being proposed by the OSM:

along with the contributor terms:

has anyone reviewed them? will they become a OSI supported license,
have they be submitted for review?

My concerns are that they are not compatible with creative commons
sharealike, and to be honest, I don't understand the license fully.

any comments on these licenses and contracts?
