I don't feel like finding the posts, but others have reported success being on 4.4.2, reflashing 4.4 system + recovery, and taking the 4.4->4.4.2 OTA without problems

And I have seen more than a few who are on the new boot loader and gone back to 4.4 and ended up hard bricked, so for the safety of most user I will continue to hold my ground on this one, happened also on 4.2.2 to 4.4 also

Curious what the answer to the question is. I, like the above poster see no reason to update my bootloader if it means I can't go back. If Verizon ever comes out with this update I would like to flash everything but the bootloader...any issue with this?

Moto changes the game with every update , so I can't say you can do that or not. See the 4.2.2 post camera update came out , you couldn't run a kitkat ROM without some security issues and the settings menu fc'ing. It required the kitkat modem. So who knows. Worst case you'll need to update eventually
Hope that helps

I am also looking at the difference between Developer Version and Non-Developer Version.

If just talking about the locked or unlocked bootloader, I think we can unlock the bootloader of Non-Developer Version. (I am outside US so warranty doesn't matter to me)

If also consider factory image, look like Motorola only provide factory image for Developer Edition, am I right?

So, for me, if I am going to flash ROM and kernel, am I more suitable to go for Developer Edition?

So there's no way to unlock AT&T bootloader? And can you buy the Dev Edition from a carrier? The Moto X is really tempting, but I kinda want some custom ROMs.
