If we find an error in OS Open Data, rather than tag our own data to say someone else has got it wrong, why not just report it to OS. After examining the postcode data for my area recently I found a couple of errors, reported them to OS who have replied saying there is indeed an error and they will send someone out to re-survey the street.
