IMO, it is safest to install the completely stock 1.1 first and let it OTA. I would be surprised if it took very long for the guys here to root it. Froyo is a pretty well understood version of Android.
What you may want to consider is to run the SD card version of CM7 final while the OTA is going on. You may find you're spoiled enough with Gingerbread that you won't want to go back to Froyo.
However, I'm really torn between the two as I really like the native Nook Color reader app. It is, IMO, much better than the Android Market version, though the Market version is serviceable. So far as I know, no one has ported it to run on CM7, much less other phones.

Ya just gotta LOVE how Android lets you customize your devices how YOU want them!

All of the stock features would be nice on any of the rooted or custom roms (including free in-store reading, nc ereader app, etc). That's the main reason I'm still on my 2.1 rooted version, is because I actually use it as an ereader too, so want to keep that functionality. Having the "nook" button prompt me for which launcher each time is annoying, but is a small price to pay in order to go back to my nook color home screen for book reading purposes.
