That sounds really scary.

If Beta 2 will not be as "stable" as that in KDE SC 4.3.x/4.4.x IMO it 
should not go to the same repo as KDE SC 4.5. [Althrough KDEPIM in KDE 
4.4.x was not as stable as it was in KDE 4.3.x (now it's more stable with 
KDE 4.4.5) but at least I don't get data corruption].
Many people do use their mail/contacts in KDEPIM. I for example have 
>15000 e-mails (both IMAP and POP3 mailboxes), few mailboxes and something 
about hundred of contacts in KDE 4.4.5 which I synchronize with my phone. 
I want to use KDE SC 4.5 when it gets released and not to loose any 
e-mail, contact or group.
