Based on my experience with Fedora on my PC, the difference between a dist-upgrade and a reinstall would be changes other than a software upgrade.  For example, if the default file system for a partition changed from ext3 to ext4, a reinstall would format the partition to ext4.  A dist-upgrade would not change the format - the partition would remain ext3.
