Default [Q] importance of DRM keys

hi, i am totally new to rooting. my phone is sony Xperia Mk16i with rooting status - Bootloader unlock status: Yes. the ROM is factory installed 2.3.4.
i was checking this forum and noticed the test point method of rooting which allows to maintain the DRM keys. i do not purchase any songs or videos online neither do i use the trackID app of my phone. is there any other reason to save the DRM keys other than the ones mentioned?

i noticed a thread in another forum where someone was complaining about not being able to use camera after rooting without saving the DRM keys.

i would also like to know if there is any method of rooting the phone without unlocking the bootloader. the main reason i want to root my phone is to increase its internal memory and be able to use the USB OTG option in my phone which is locked.

i am trying this after expiry of the warranty period and seriously can't afford to brick my phone.
any help or answers will be much appreciated.

thank you
