FYI, I used the Swedish update, and all my settings were preserved.
No major issues found, so far (see 4.3 feedback thread).
ROM is awesome.

Firmware updates are made available on each region/carrier as soon as the corresponding SI variant is ready for provisioning.
You may have more than on SI firmware variant on each country, depending if it is for a unlocked phone or for a specific mobile operator.
To know your phone's SI number, type in your dialer *#*#7378423#*#* then go to "Service info" then "Software info" you'll see that the Customization Version (something like 1268-5895).
A recent list of SI numbers for Xperia V can be found here.
So, it's a question of time until your phone get's the update that is the right one for your region and carrier.
I hope this clarifies why some updates arrive later than other.
