Mozilla 1.0 is not going to be better than ie in all respects (eg page rendering speed). There will be many people who try it out and then return to ie for general browsing. We want to make sure that they keep mozilla around and use it for *some* things which it does and ie does not. It will then be easier to encourage these people to use post 1.0 mozilla. Examples of such features are mathml and pgp email. The main thing is there have to be some clear (to an average user) ways in which mozilla is *better* than ie.
And No I would not hold 1.0 for either of the above features but I would for some features like the above.
