Question Unlocking the boot loader

I always wondered why everyone didn't root their phone. It allows you so much more freedom with your device. If you ever have problems with your phone you can simply reverse the procedure and the manufacture would be none the wiser that your phone was ever rooted. The other day I finally was able to get a new phone (HTC One) and of course I was looking forward to getting it rooted. I looked for instructions on how to do it and according to the webpage it said I needed to unlock the bootloader. No big deal... or so I thought.

When I went to the HTC website to unlock the bootloader it said that unlocking the boot loader was permanent, and could not be undone. It said it would void the warranty. Is this true or are they just trying to scare people? I clearly don't want to lose the warranty, but there are some programs (like Titanium) that I'd really like to install. I don't remember ever having this issue with any of my other rooted phones. What gives
