Is there a best practice for acknowledging shared data?

One of the major concerns arising from increasing pressure to share data is that data producers are not being adequately acknowledged by users of their shared data.

How widespread are journal policies to require explicit acknowledgment of the publications and (or) individuals responsible for creating and archiving data (e.g. DNA sequences on GenBank)?

Has the 2009 "Toronto Statement" (http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v461/n7261/full/461168a.html) been explicitly accepted by journals as regards respecting the rights and interests of data producers?
