[*]Taking future OTA's will not re-lock your bootloader, however you will need to have stock recovery on your phone, and revert any modified system files, i.e. get back to "stock" or nearly stock, in order to install OTA's, just like those with Developer Edition phones have to do. (this is due to the OTA updates containing a manifest file that lists files and their "check sums" it looks for on your phone before it starts. If they are not on your phone, or the ones on your phone don't match the expected check sum, the OTA install will fail.)
[*]Flashing with RSDLite will not re-lock your bootloader
[*]Only manually re-locking via the relock process (moto has on the Dev Edition web site, it is fastboot oem lock ) will re-lock your bootloader.
So, I'd need to reinstall all the bloatware that came on the phone originally? That's pretty much all I took off the phone was all of Verizon's crap that I'll never use nor have any interest in. The only other thing I did was edit the navigation keys out using the build.prop, but that's easy enough to turn back on. My phone as well as my wife's are stock aside from the removal of the bloatware and taking the nav keys out of my phone.
When it comes to taking OTA's, yes.
Inside the OTA is a manifest file. It contains a list of files and their check sums it expects to be on your phone. If the files are missing, or the check sum for a particular file doesn't match (because you've replaced or altered the file), the OTA will fall. Because of this, you must be "stock" (or as close to stock as possible). Any bloat you deleted, needs to be put back. Any files you altered (like build.prop) need to be reverted. Any apps you froze with Titanium Backup or the like, may need to be unfrozen.
Apps disabled via the phone's Settings -> Applications -> [select app] -> [disable] can remain disabled and should not impact the update.[COLOR="Silver"]

Well damn, I'm kind of screwed then as I deleted all those dumbass Verizon apps that I have no use for and didn't bother making backups of any of them. I'll have to check the "Apps" folder and see if the .apk files are still there so that Google Play can redownload them at some point.
I don't even think the backup I made via TWRP has them. Although I think Motorola's website does have the system image so I can probably just reflash that when the next OTA comes out.
