    More than likely once the OTA drops many devs will take it and make it available in some way to the rooted users.

    i would say most rooted users arent concerned necessarily with the OTA updates as roms, etc will be ahead of the game on that, but if you went the clockwork mod method and renamed the recovery file with a .bak at the end, all you would have to do is remove that file extension, reboot to reflash stock recovery, then reboot again and you should be able to receive the OTA at that point, assuming all you did was unlock and root and not flash. for instance, i unlocked and rooted to use certain apps that require root, but havent flashed anything yet, so this method would work for me

    Same here, I rooted for certain apps (Titanium Backup being a big one) but stayed on stock ROM. Usually even though OTA updates break root, it doesn't seem to take long for a dev to come up with a new root method.

    i'm actually very interested in the next OTA as it will have the latest radio drivers. Those will have to get rolled into the current roms or be provided as a zip such as the leaked ones.
