I think it’s common sense to make sure the update does not break the site. For both user and dev. At the end it’s more important to have the site working rather than knowing who’s fault it is, if something goes bad.
Safety first! :)

Sound advice. I’m already running 3.6-alpha locally.

Don’t update to WordPress 3.5 when you don’t have any confirmation yet from us Authors. Ask first before you update to avoid errors Thanks.
I am using WordPress 3.4.2 I just payed for Bounce and tried to install it in a fresh default install of wordpress CMS, I get the “Are you sure you want to do this?” please try again, what a waste of time and money!

Yeah, because authors live in future and they just come here to make themes for 5 versions in advance… :S Seriously, if something is made to work on 3.4 and when you bought it, it never said it’ll work with future versions, you don’t come here crying and go all-caps rage on authors because your template doesn’t work after you updated WP without even bothering to find out whether the template is compatible with latest version of WP or not. Though I don’t know how goes this whole migration thing with WP, but this was generally speaking…

WordPress has this sort of thing for their plugins for the longest time I can remember:

It serves as a warning to the user that they should probably wait until the plugin is confirmed to be working correctly with the WP version they have on the server. This is pretty much standard, and in the word of Wickedpixel, common sense. It would be foolish to tell users to ignore this warning.

If a WordPress theme has been properly coded and follows the guidelines set by the creators of WP itself then no theme should break when updating unless WordPress changed something drastically, e.g. decided to deprecate a function in favor of an improved version.

Okay, I said I’m not familiar with either of versions, so I don’t know whether 3.5 brings enough changes to require migration or is it just a minor update. I was more generally speaking, e.g. when Joomla 1.7 came out, many components and themes made for 1.6 worked on J1.7, but were really buggy, while none of 1.5 stuff worked on 1.6…
