"Because it's what everyone but a handful of Mozilla fanboys will measure Mozilla's success by. That's what "will count"."

...and when they download the 1.0 version, all these people who previously didn't take much interest in the mozilla project but have decided to take a look at it, will be going 'Gosh, wasn't this project launched in 1998, and has taken 4 years to reach 1.0, which computer professionals tend to use to denote a first stable version, failing to meet a number of projected release dates, thus suggesting that the development method they used was flawed'?

I doubt it. I'd be more likely to bet on a response of 'Oooh, nice browser!', somehow.
