I'm planning to embark on project that involves spatial data. It will show places via markers and then guide them to places they choose as well as show some details like distance.
That will require me to add another table that will store information at certain location. For example I want to store that at LatLng X there is this bus store and contact details. So definitely I will add new table that will be linked to OSM tables.
Haven't checked much of OSM except for reading posts about licensing and not being a lawyer: is open street map right choice? I have no problem putting acknowledgment link on map, but am confused about the other parts of the license

Generally, if you are ok to release all your data under ODbL then you'll never have a problem. If you would like to keep your data to yourself then you will have read up a little on the license. It appears that this guideline might relate to your question: http://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Licence/Community_Guidelines/Horizontal_Map_Layers_-_Guideline
