With stories of iPhones (even those who weren't unlocked) getting iBricked, it seems that there's a growing trend for people to fear Apple's security patches. Apparently the rumors of possible damage to phones (kicked off by Apple's own announcement) has spread widely enough that the message getting through isn't "don't unlock your iPhone," as Apple may have intended -- but, "don't update your iPhone with official Apple patches." From Apple's perspective, that can't be a good thing. Perhaps, next time, they'll be a bit more careful in crafting patches.
