I respectfully disagree :-) Two reasons:
Firstly, this quickly leads to coupled tests. If test N+1 only passes if
test N cleans up, test N+1 will fail if run in isolation.
Secondly, if each test cleans up after itself, you can't manually look at
the database to figure out why a test fails - there is no data!
