"So I am forced to switch to CM, and that involves rooting the 'phone."

Installing a custom ROM on Samsung devices doesn't necessarily require root. Odin lets you flash custom ROMs on most Samsung Galaxy devices without root (although it does have here there be dragons warnings when you attempt it). Even if root were required to gain access to flash a custom ROM, there's no reason the ROM you flash should have root.
