Just for reference, I've just compared the LineStrings for the street 
where I live in both Open USRN and OS OpenMap Local. Apart from the fact 
that, for one coordinate pair, OSOML is rounding to two decimal places 
wile Open USRN uses three decimal places, they are identical.

Obviously, that's just one suburban residential street, and other, more 
complex routes may not match so well. But the principle works on a 
sample location, so it's just a case of seeing how consistent it is 
across the entire network. I may have a look at that in more detail next 
week. But I've been working flat out on processing open UPRNs and UPRNs 
since Wednesday, and, right now, it's wine o'clock :-)
