    Are there any drawbacks? This worried me a bit, is this wise to do security wise? So if somebody somehow changes my iCloud account I'm locked out of the mac for good?

    I did. I also turned on two-step verification.

    Anybody know if you do this but change your mind, can this be undone?

    As long as you have control over your 'Rescue' email addy, you'll be safe.

    I looked for an option to change after installation, and didn't see one. I may have missed it, though.

    If I go to my account in Users & Groups and select "Change password" I have an option to Use the iCloud password, not sure if this is the exact same thing as the install option but my guess is yes. I went ahead and enabled the use of the iCloud password and now I have an option to "Use separate password" so I guess that answers it.
