Well it has some technical advantages obviously, but I feel it's only worth doing for 2 reasons:

1. If you want advanced logging. I think it's massively intrusive to record call logs and text messages but I can see why some large organisations would want to do this.

2. If you want to start writing and pushing applications to devices.

I've got two 4.1 test environments at the moment and I'm finding it a little buggy. I've had some issues with OTA activations, remote kills and IT policy deployment. I find 4.0.4 massively stable, and for the extra couple of features (which I wouldn't need to be honest) it's not worth the hassle right now.

Other may have a different opinion, but that's mine!

thats an interesting view, from the docs I have read, i think I would agree, there seems to be very little reason for me to move toward 4.1 (yet)
