I like to test the installer for every new release, as (for me) I think 
that is what new users will use, and I like to make sure it will work as 
expected, and go smoothly.  I have been pleasantly surprised in the past 
couple of releases to find everything going exactly as I had hoped with 
no bugs.  It also goes remarkably quick.
I'm glad you do it the other way, though as we need people to test 
upgrading through that method!
I keep /home in a separate partition for recovery purposes, as I 
sometimes do some wild things to my testing computer :) and I like to 
not lose everything if I bork my system badly enough.
