Are stylized maps acceptable data sources?

Are stylized maps acceptable data sources? I’m referring to things like transit maps and ski resort maps, showing layout and names but distorted from the actual geography. I’m wondering whether the usual restriction against copying from other maps doesn’t apply because they are symbolic and detailed coordinates would have to come from elsewhere, but I don’t know if that’s actually how it works.
