For me I don't think they're worth it given that pads and rotors are covered under the maintenance plan. It may go to the track a few times while I own it and I like the blue calipers better anyway.
If the CCBs are covered under warranty and they are offered for significantly less than they are on the M5 and M6, then I think they're a must even if one doesn't track simply for the significant reduction in unsprung weight. I felt a noticeable gain in weight when I went from 220Ms to 359Ms on my car, and that was around a 2-3 pound per corner difference, not a 7 pound difference like in the CC vs steel brakes.
