1.if you just want to root and dont want to UBL , follow that link.
2. Some kernels comes with intergrated cwm..like thunderzap ,phantom..! TO USE THOSE KERNELS YOU HAVE TO UNLOCK YOUR BL.
3.if you want to use custom rom like cm,
You have to unlock your bootloader.

I hope I cleared your doubts..

EDIT : there is a cwm for locked bootloader too...search in android development section..!
