[Q] Do I need to relock the bootloader to run a RUU?

I'm not returning it to the store or anything, I'm just selling my One X to someone else and I want them to be able to receive AT&T OTA updates when they come out. They won't be hacking or rooting the phone or anything.

I was going through the "return to stock" instructions (i.e., fastboot oem lock, run RUU, etc.) but I'm having issues with fastboot. I'm a little pressed for time, so I have to wonder if re-locking the bootloader is really necessary for what I want to accomplish.
