No problem.

I just think that way is easier....I wouldn't want you putting extra work in, if you dont have to. It also gives you more freedom to work with mods in the future too, or kernels etc

Yep it's all good. For some reason, I had this little fear of the fact it's an official stock rom, that's been "toyed" with. But of course that makes no sense really, considering I'm willing to install many third party apps and processes that could easily alter/mess my phone up.

Do the rooted stock roms get released fairly rapidly after the official one is released?

Yeah. as soon as the factory image is released. Maybe a day or two. Which is before 99% of people even receive the OTA notification

Perfect, thanks for clearing things up for me.

Just checking, I'll make a backup before I flash, but technically, will all my data still be there if all goes to plan?

Yep. the /data partition is not touched. Just /system and /boot (ROM and Kernel)
