I noticed more issues with battery when I restored via iCloud or iTunes vs starting new ..
Contacts come back via iCloud as well as photos if you use photo stream
App data is gone unless your restore your back up and see what happens

We restore so we can properly test the software and report bugs so by the time public people get it they are fixed ..
If your worried just restore but you might have extra issues vs not doing so .. If app data is really important then I recommend staying clear of beta

Whenever a new version is released, i usually restore as new. Reason is, code has changed, I'd rather have the new/optimized code rather than restoring things that could possibly break or cause issues. Things seem to run better when when setting up from new. Especially battery life.
And yes, there should be some testing regarding restores, however, I'm not in that boat."If you settle for less, you'll settle for anything."

If I'm going from 5.1.1 to a new beta, I'm restoring as new. Which I did.
If I'm going from 5.0.1 to 5.1.1, I'll just restore my backup.
Some people just like to start fresh no matter what. Which is fine. But don't restore a backup from iOS 5
if you're going to ios 6 beta.
