Don't use beta software unless you are comfortable with the premise. This is a genuine beta trial designed to help the developers catch and fix bugs and unintended consequences before the official release. If the 1.1.0.beta suddenly changes your laptop into a murderous robot hell-bent on destroying it's human masters(*), then L&L won't accept responsibility for that.
With that caveat out of the way, if you take sensible backup precautions (and I'd include regular compiles to a different format as part of any sensible backup regime, beta or not) then my personal experience is that it is stable and am using it for my own main projects, not just test documents.

Regardless of whether there's a splash screen or not, if users (paid or trial) want to install the newest beta, I'd ask for an email address. Beyond tracking and metrics I believe having a "BETA" email list to more effectively communicate with some of my most important and valued users is of great value to everyone.
As for notifications, when the Beta is about to expire (say a week or two out) I'd send off a a series of email notification to all beta users and perhaps even include a survey with the last one to help better understand what's working, what needs improvement and in general get some great feedback.

Having such a functionality, even if it means tweaking spaces afterward, would make my workflow much easier, and I feel like others probably have the same issue. It makes it difficult for me to use Scrivener, because it's just that much harder to select multiple words at once (and I use that feature constantly in other text editors).

Also, can we assume that we don't need to re-raise bugs from 184.108.40.206 if they are still in 220.127.116.11 - even if you've not formally acknowledged them in the forum?
