Yes, you can always flash the new update. No, you don't lose "the bravia thing"

You sure? You lost it upon unlocking on the latest previous device (Xperia T). Would be cool if it didn't get lost.
And just to clear up, I don't really miss it on my unlocked T but I'm still somewhat annoyed when I see/read other peoples raving about it
Current: Sony XPERIA Z1 Compact (D5503) unlocked, rooted stock 4.4.4 | Asus Transformer Pad (TF300T) locked, rooted stock 4.3
Deprecated: Sony XPERIA Z, Sony XPERIA T, Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy Note, HTC DesireZ, HTC 7, Nokia N900, HTC Magic, HTC Touch Pro, SonyEricsson XPERIA X1, HTC Touch Cruise, HTC Canary (Orange SPV) et al.

This is from sony site...............Also note that there is no turning back once you have unlocked the boot loader. You will not be able to revert the device to a locked or original state if you unlock it. In addition, if you brick the device, it is your own responsibility. Note that you will not receive any official software upgrades if you unlock your device.

all official updates will be converted into FTF files... similar to RUU files (HTC), or TAR.MD5 (Samsung)... which can be flashed on both locked and unlocked bootloader devices...

dont worry... unlocking bootloader hasnt stopped any of the users from 2011 to update to latest official software upgrade
