"You will not be able to upgrade from the Lion Developer Preview 2 to the final Lion release."

Humm ... sounds like Microsoft ... I thought this was possible in old preview programs? Any idea?

Usually had to start over and restore your data with previous betas.

And no, doesn't really sound like Microsoft. You don't want people using an updated OS that could still carry over part of the beta and cause issues.

That's probably because there are going to be more seeds. You'll be able to upgrade from the last seed to the GM, I'm betting.

At any rate...they also say you can't downgrade from the iOS betas to the latest official release but you can.
