Indeed, I'm minorly concerned about that too.
I was just trying to restore the original recovery image functionality. No particular reason right now, just wanted to. Like I said before, I rooted using slapmymoto .5C and am on the 4.4 OTA. The files I used to flash (gpt, boot and recovery) were from the 4.4 SBF (VZW_XT1060_4.4-13.11.1Q2.X-69-3_CFC_1FF.xml.zip). I think I'm covered here, but I'm also not taking the current OTA until its rooted or I can unlock, neither of which seems likely to happen anytime soon.
