No, that's a common misconception.  Akonadi is a just common data access 
library that also caches data for efficiency, the underlying data storage 
remains unchaged, i.e. the usual maildir or ical files.  If the Akonadi 
migration screws up, then your underlying data is safe, it's just your 
configuration that gets trashed.  In extremis you can then just delete the 
Akonadi configuration and cache, start clean and re-import the data.
