Default Option to customize without root -- safestrap

Due to some work-related reason, I can't have a rooted Moto X.

I start to think about what I can do without root. If I understand it correctly, if I have an unlocked boot-loader, I will be able to install TWRP and flash the apps that need the root access. Is this true?

If so, is hashcode's safestrap a viable option? Yes I'd have to waste some space. But the ROM slot I added will be essentially flash-able via TWRP.

Can anyone comment if this will work?

Thanks

The idea of SafeStrap, I think, is to create another slot. This does not require an unlocked boot-loader, does it?
