Hi,

I'm wondering if it would be feasible and advisable to import the UK 
postcode data from OS OpenData Codepoint 
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Ordnance_Survey_OpenData#Code-Point_Open>.

The licence is OSM compatible. My thinking was that we could create a 
node for each data point and set the addr:postcode tag. This would be 
useful for routing software like OsmAnd, since it would allow a user to 
enter a postcode as a destination.

I'm happy to do the work, but the import guidelines 
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Guidelines> say that imports 
should be discussed on the imports@ list and the appropriate local 
communities, hence this email.
