You can attempt to. But I don't recommend it. I recommand doing a
complete wipe and doing a fresh install of the final release if it is
your intention to stop participating in the development process.

http://www.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Testing
By installing a test release you are essentially agreeing to doing a
fresh install of a stable release when you are ready to stop
participating in the development process. Please remember that the
fedora core development process is an on-going affair and the test
releases are just more easily digestable versions of the current
development tree. Once you install the test release you are
essentially running a version of the development tree. Once you start
installing updates you are syncing with the development tree. Moving
off the development tree to any stable release could be considered
downgrading in a sense.
