Nope. Just install MacTeX-2012 when it comes out. Note: you will NOT lose TL2011 when you install TL2012 (via the MacTeX installer)! You can use the TeX Distribution Preference Pane in System Preferences to change between them. Once you're convinced that TL2012 you can fairly easily remove your TL2011 distribution.

Good Luck,
