I think the idea is to try to be sure the filesystem is in a good
state, that doesn't mean data isn't lost(e.g. in disk cache or in
open files). Usually data is not lost but it's not impossible to
lose data. I read that ext3's journal=data(?) provides even more
protection at a cost of some performance.

I've done the same on both reiserfs and ext3 with no noticable
problems either.

as far as I know yes it does.
