[talk-ch] Use of map.geo.admin.ch

I've just been pointed to a series of edits (organized by a very large
and well known Swiss company)  that have used material from
map.geo.admin.ch for edits in OSM. These edits will naturally be
reverted, but it would be better if people would not create additional
work for the already overloaded DWG.

To repeat: map.geo.admin.ch and and SwissTopo WMS services are
completely off limits for any use in OSM.

Even those SwissTopo datasets that have a "free" licence are not openly
licensed and cannot be used without special explicit permission.
