9 times out of 10 a week after a major OTA for instance firmware or os upgrade there will he a dev that's created or modified a Rom solely for that OTA so root users won't have to unroot to take the update.

Close. For the last few updates for the Razr, the update broken root but there are easy ways to "save" root and restore root afterwards.

Oh, and I've been running rooted phones since android 1.5, generally with the stock OS. By installing the updates myself, I have generally gotten upgrades weeks before I would have received them OTA.
