Is un-rooting an Android phone required to receive OTA updates?

I’ve been thinking about rooting my phone, but was wondering if doing so would prohibit me from receiving any future OTA updates. My phone is due to get ICS in the near-ish future, but I thought it would be fun to mess around with it until then if I can easily un-root or update through the official channel later on. I’m completely ignorant when it comes to rooting, and won’t do anything until doing the proper research. I just figured I’d find this out first to see if it’s worth the hassle. Any ideas?

I have the HTC Incredible 2 (Running Android 2.3.4) if that’s important info to know.
