No, you can just erase that data if some some reason that data is hindering normal use.

We already have backup/restore option. Go to backup and then advanced options and see list of apps that you can enable/disable. When you restore a backup all the apps will restore their data. When you delete an app and then re-install they will restore the data. If you ever installed an app from the store you will see when following the progress that at one point there is a "restoring data" process after the install.
