[Talk-GB] VectorMap District: Completely crazy idea, maybe, but...

Despite being disappointed at the lack of public right of way/field boundary info in the OS releases, I have to admit that VectorMap District does *look* very nice, kind of like Landranger minus contours and footpaths.

So I'm wondering, would it be possible to create maps which combine the VectorMap District raster layer with footpaths from OSM and contours from SRTM (or even the OS's own contour data, if that's better than SRTM?)

Would be a bit tricky but I'm wondering if the relevant colours in the VectorMap District (white, and the green colour used for woods) could be defined as transparent. A contour layer could then be defined as the bottom layer, then overlaid by a processed (to define transparency, as above) VectorMap District layer, then on top, overlaid with rights of way data from OSM - and then you'd kind of have an OpenLandranger map, perhaps. Might this work I wonder?
