This is an area I'm actually really interested in (for rural rivers) and
keen to contribute. So far I've been put off by exactly this problem. Is
a reasonable approach to use the OS data for river edges and then fill
in the gaps (bridges etc) with OSM data?

I guess its possible that the OSM data is better, but most of the rivers
I look at are distinctly rougher than the OS data (not that that
necessarily confers any information about accuracy). Same goes for lake
and tarn boundaries.
