Already rooted and safe strapped. Just know that on previous devices if you flash a lot different kernel on a locked BL The device was rendered paper weight status

There's a few ROMs in the Dev section. Not many, as most seem to prefer keeping the unique moto features and run stock and customize with xposed and gravity box.

Cm and aosp ROMs don't have moto features I should have said.

If I unlock and root my VZW Moto X via the Chinese middle-man method and then install Xposed + GravityBox, can I still accept future OTAs without losing root, without losing BL unlocked, and without breaking Xposed?

As long as your unlocked you can flash custom recovery and flash and radio/system/etc.

Short version. Once you unlock the bootloader, you'd have to manually issuing fastboot oem lock will relock the bootloader. Yes, once rooted you can install Xposed and Gravity Box. Future OTA's require you have stock recovery, and be as close to stock as possible (all bloat there, proper/unmodified system files, etc). You will likely have to DISABLE Xposed. You will likely have to re-root, which is easy when your bootloader is unlocked or you have the code to unlock it.

For more details, Read -> http://mark.cdmaforums.com/MotoX-Unlock1.htm it will answer your questions, and more about unlocking. And -> http://mark.cdmaforums.com/MotoX-OTA.html will answer your questions about taking an OTA in the future.
