As two or three posts have already alluded to, there's a big difference in the Catalina file structure (bifurcated) and generating a bootable backup of Catalina is going to require a lot of work by the developers of SuperDuper! and CCC before they have a shippable (non-beta) version.
And as of now, the back-up drive will have to be connected directly to your computer as opposed to being on a network.
For anyone planning on jumping on the Day One upgrade wagon, suggest reading the developer blogs on the Carbon Copy Cloner and SuperDuper! websites. You'll glean a lot of 'under the hood info' about Catalina and might just decide to delay things a bit.
This article talks about having a good backup prior to the Catalina upgrade but they haven't addressed how you back up Catalina (including the Time Machine limitations with Catalina) the day after you've upgraded.

I still like a flip case that covers the front of the phone as well as the back so I don't worry when I stick the phone in a coat pocket with my car/house/office keyring. I thought my superb Greenwich iPhone X case (https://greenwich.design/collection/smartphone-cases/iphone.html) was extravagant but it's pocket change compared to this one.
Glenn Fleishman wrote a similar article on TidBits.com back on the 20th and also suggested Quad9 for consideration (188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206).
MacRumors has a HomePod article which includes details on how to track your UPS Next Day Air Saver HomePod shipment even if Apple still shows "Preparing to Ship." All you need is the phone number associated with the order.
Worked for me, a nine pound package scheduled for delivery tomorrow (Friday) by end-of-day.
