I would exepct people to have adequate backups, or equivalent disaster recovery, whether they reshape an array or not. RAID can improve reliability, but never make the data indestructable.
Further, once the code is finished, fully reviewed and fully tested (which is still a little way off), I don't see that you data would be any less safe during a reshape then it is during a resync.
