The CM update guide doesn't say to change your bootloader, all you do is put the disable lagfix file, flash overstock and then flash CM7.

What's the perk and what is supposed to happen if you don't have a GB bootloader and run a GB rom?

Yeah. Aside from a more convenient 2-button recovery access (and flashing one of adyscorpius' custom bl's), it doesn't seem to be the major issue (rainbows mainly) that it once was.

Although I did run into issues not being able to get into recovery running Froyo BL's on an older ICZen rom. That issue had since been addressed by mr_psycho (in the kernel), so life goes on.
