Good question. I was wondering the same thing.

I also want to know, how will the official ICS update affect the HBOOT downgrade exploit. Will it fix the vulerability? If I suspect that I want full S-off in the future, should I do it now?

are you s-off? i doubt that it will be the same, the ics roms now are based off a leak for the Virgin Mobile 3d and its not official. there is always bugs in a leak version. we will have a working version when its the OTA update

Try wiping everything first. Use a superwipe.zip, then flash the ics rom of your choice. If it still doesnt work. Dirty flash that bad boi

I was s-on with hboot 1.5, unlocked with the HTC method, and I couldn't get either of the ICS ROMs that I tried (CleanROM and MeanROM) to work without endless boot loops despite super-wiping and everything. The only thing that worked for me was getting s-off using the wire trick (so I'm still on hboot 1.5). I was then able to run MeanROM without ANY wiping/resetting.

I know that the developers say you have to wipe everything before flashing their ROMs, and I don't dispute that one should do that to be sure, but in my experience wiping has never made the difference between failure and success.
