[Talk-GB] Import UK postcode data?

I'm wondering if it would be feasible and advisable to import the UK
postcode data from OS OpenData Codepoint
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.
