As long as you have a stock recovery, any OTA you receive be able to be applied (you'll actually get the OTA even if you have a non-stock recovery, you just wouldn't be able to install it until you had the stock recovery installed).

Bear in mind that you might also want to install and run OTA RootKeeper so that you can still get root (recover root) after taking an OTA (like when 4.0.4 comes out).

Can you even install clockworkmod using this exploit without unlocking?
Yes!

After you root, just download ROM Manager and use it to flash ClockworkMod custom recovery.

Cheers!
