Default Jelly Bean 4.2?

I'm posting this hear instead of One X+ forum because there's not enough users there yet. I know One X was/is? ICS 4.0 stock so please don't flame me.

Just pre-ordered an HTC One X + from AT&T today. Comes with JB 4.1 I believe. Coming from iPhone (jailbroken of course.) I see there was also a recent announcement, something about 4.2 being released by Google to VOSD. Read some of the improvements in 4.2 and would love to have them. But frankly, I don't want to spend hours futzing with my phone or risk bricking it. On the other hand, I don't want to wait 6 months for HTC to release a 4.2 update.

Without any prior experience can someone with HTC One X Custom ROM Experience throw me a bone. Will there be a 4.2 ROM at some place like XDA Developers I can download that will be stable and how long do you estimate before it is available versus waiting for HTC?

I've heard good things about Sense, but if I consider myself to now be a lifelong Android user, isn't it better to get used to using a vanilla version of the OS instead of using some manufacturer-specific overlay like Sense? So should I install a custom ROM no matter what from that perspective or will I loose to many conveniences/features specific to the phone?

Finally, will I be able to go back to stock HTC ROM (whatever is the most recent version) for warranty/resale purposes if I don't wait for the HTC upgrades?
