No, 1.0 is a version that is stable/usable and has all the debugging menu items disabled and does not point you to a "thank you for helping to test this development build" page when you start the thing.
It would be nice to have a mozilla build for non techie users that has been well tested and packaged for end users (i.e. without the alpa version warnings and debuging/testing related menu-items). So far the milestones have been increasingly better. I wouldn't have much problems with the current milestone being labeled 1.0. The question of the original poster was when this is going to happen. I think it is a reasonable question considering the quality of the current milestone.
A 1.0 would mean: - a clear deliverable by the mozilla project - a signal to end users that they can go ahead and install the thing - a signal to third parties that there's something to target their mozilla extensions at - an opportunity for mozilla developers to start the possibly destabilizing work on next generation features
