Of course that depends on how the invites go out, if its random then the above will most likely happen. Im sure the majority of people when they see the word "beta" they think "demo". People should see it as a privilege to play the game early and in return take the time and effort to post on the beta forums to help improve the game. Everyone wants a better product overall im sure.
Yes, what you're saying is true, I'm glad some people understand.
Sadly this kind of thing happens everywhere, whereas there will be only a few dedicated testers while a large majority would just want to mess the game (and forget about it in a day).
That's really how most games get "tested" which is why public betas and late closed betas are pretty much useless except for stress testing.
