There are other issues with the iPad 6.15 baseband besides ruining the GPS. There's also battery drain. And, it requires relying on custom-generated ISPW updates for a lifetime.
The worst part is that it's irreversible. Once you put the 6.15 iPad baseband on your iPhone, there's no turning back. Warranty voided.

my 3gs is long past warranty so in my case that is not an issue. again in my case, SAM fixed battery drain and push problems, and sn0wbreeze builds custom ipsw's at least to this point. No guarantee jailbreaks will continue indefinitely but as long as there are jb's, good bet sn0wbreeze will be updated to build the ipsw's. Doubtful that Apple will continue to support the 3GS indefinitely. So like the 2G and 3G, there is a good chance there will be an end of updates in the not too distant future, possibly with ios 5.
Issues are most definitely there. Every person has to simply decide to what extent they need the unlock... to go from one carrier to another in the same location may not be worth the potential cost savings on the service plans. To use it outside your location for travel or moving to another country, then it may be worth it if buying an unlocked iphone is not financially feasible. Not everyone has the financial means - I could not buy a mobile smartphone to use for the half year abroad that I needed the phone unlocked. those that can afford the price tag should go for the factory unlocked phone for sure!
