I bought a FTV that's on 51.1.0.1. I rooted it, and added XBMC, which is all I use it for. Is there any benefit to unlocking the bootloader, and upgrading the firmware?

The benefits right now are few that I've seen. Unlocking it allows you to flash custom kernels that overclock it but I've read nothing that would make me want to try it. I unlocked mine but probably don't need it right now. Your firmware is safe to keep and doesn't require a downgrade. Mine did which is part of the reason I went through the very tedious process of rooting, downgrading, installing cwm, installing prerooted fw and rerooting.
Only benefit is the few added features amazon added that you can get if you install recovery. Check xda to see any new developments but as of today I'd say you're good at 51.1.0.1
