Not sure how other beta testers experienced it but the landscape stuff and most the quest stuff up to about level 93 I passed on, lost too many benefits for a couple hundred AC or a boost of a bit of morale or a couple agi. In beta I took most my Hytbold all the way to 94-95 and kept both my SAs as well with no apparent problems. Even kept hold of most my jewelry and off-hand until the very last. The stats on the new stuff are okay, but those extras just weren't there.
As such if you are there and you want to do it I wouldn't worry about "outgrowing" it too fast, unless of course you are one who likes to do the "run to the finish" and level to 95 by next weekend, heh heh.
