Ordnance Survey released an OpenData StreetView raster update in November 2011.

How can the OS tiles at http://os.openstreetmap.org/ be updated with these?

I am looking at updating these tiles. I will report back when done. ~2 weeks.

Is it advisable to have mass data imports from OS? They caused massive geometrical errors around Cambridge and the New Forest and rarely were supported by Bing imagery. Or is there something I don't understand?

For where I am in Norfolk the OS OpenData StreetView tiles were well aligned and the most significant source of building shapes and alignment adjustment for Bing aerial imagery. The OS tiles originate from the most accurate data source available in terms of precision. Having the latest free version on the tile servers is beneficial for mapping new developments. If the tiles are obviously erroneous then they can be safely ignored, but there's more benefit than negative outcome I'd say.

Firefishy, any movement on finding a way to update the tiles?

Hopefully this could be made into an automated process for future use.
