Well, same here. I've been asking this myself, too. And I've also 
commented on this with some friends.
I've decided to do a clean install. Mainly because my box is an upgraded 
system from RH8 to FC1. That worked, but I had to deal with several 
annoyances here and there... and there are some minor things that still 
don't work the way I'd like.
So I don't want to add the FC1->FC2 (possible) mess on top of the 
RH8->FC1 (little) one.

But the fedora-test list is plenty of SUCCESS stories from FC1 to 
FC2testX... so I suppose the upgrade to the *final* release (which is a 
supported migration path) should work just fine.

So I think this is very subjective, very related to you particular 
situation, your time, how important your box is, your hardware... etc.

Just my $.02
