Yes, that's related to copyright and permissions
of the material, but what
about that first sentence:
*You shall not download any Content unless you see a “download” or similar
link displayed by YouTube on the Service for that Content*
Jan pointed out that youtube2mediawiki.py doesn't actually "download"

in the sentence below.
Commons is ultra-conservative with copyright, but doesn't really care about
any other terms and conditions imposed by anyone else. So I think it's fine
to transfer the videos from YouTube to Commons - no copyright is violated
and the ambiguity in the YouTube TOS works in our favour.
