The fact that Ruger returns the parts doesn't mean they stay with the gun. And I do not agree that having the conversion done doesn't affect the value of the gun. The reality is, people are willing to pay more for 3-screw models that have not been converted. That's just fact.
As for "Do get the safety conversion," I think that's debatable. I know if I could find an unconverted 3-screw model, I certainly wouldn't have it converted. As it is, I own a new-model Ruger Single Six and another .22 six-shooter that has a conventional hammer-mounted firing pin. I mostly shoot the traditional one, and the Ruger stays at home.
