Short answer: Yes, it can be incorporated as long as it's been issued
under the Open Government Licence.
However, this data is not always the most accurate & the consensus is
that it's much better if "witnessed" by walking it. For example, the
direction of a few paths on the OS map in my area are set by hedgerows
which have long since been uprooted.
