    I think you mean lock, I dont think its a problem as lock as you stay on the stock rom. but i see no reason why you would want that ? if somthing would go wrong at least you could reflash twrp

    I locked my bootloader while stock recovery + CyanogenMod Nightly was installed. That bricked the device.
    The warning message at boot is not very noob-friendly. It just says you should lock the bootloader but doesn't say you have to flash the stock ROM first. So when you listen to the message, you might brick the device.

    if you lock bootloader and you are on ROM other then OxygenOS then you will brick your phone. Better not to lock bootloader.

    Enjoy your bootloader as now, but after Android 7 it will be more annoing to use, Google want everyone to use stock.

    That's not true. The changes introduced with Android N have no effect on devices with unlockable bootloaders. Once you unlock it, all the new security features are disabled as to not interfere with your modifications. Literally backwards from what you're claiming.
