I guess we will see when we get instructions from either Moto or in my case Verizon since I signed up with them to get the update as soon as it was available.

You just can't permanently decrypt it without doing a hard reset.

Per the note/settings in the Xoom:
Setting > Location & Security > Encrypt tablet
"You can encrypt your accounts, settings, downloaded applications and their data, media, and other other files. Once you encrypt your tablet, you must enter a numeric PIN or password to decrypt it each time you power it on; you can't unencrypt your tablet except by performing a factory data reset, erasing all your data.
Encryption takes an hour or more. You must start with a charged battery and keep your tablet plugged in until encryption is complete. If you interrupt the encryption process, you will lose some or all of your date."
After reading this I can understand why they will require it encrypted before the do an upgrade, they are protecting the owner of lost/stolen data during transit/upgrade.

Beyond that, the Xoom is the first tablet running Honeycomb, and as such is the "de facto" tablet of choice for developers, who need to unlock their devices and at times even root their devices for development purposes. This is why the Xoom is stock Honeycomb, with no bloatware from Verizon and Motorola. Motorola didn't even pre-install their custom Xoom Help app on the tablet. Motorola is a party to this, and seems to be supporting the development community, so I think Motorola would be judicious in handling warranty claims.
