Erm, no, you're wrong. That's not what 1.0 will be. Mozilla is a development project, and will always be for testing and development purposes. There won't be a build that doesn't thank you for helping test it. There are builds packaged for end users - Netscape, Beonex, etc. If you want to produce your own, you're welcome to.
What 1.0 I think signifies is the all-important API freeze. What that means is that bits can be developed separately, but are not allowed to break conventions on how they communicate with each other.
What 1.0 also means is that work can begin on the 2.x series, so people will once again be able to commit MAJOR changes, which alter the way mozilla is used and presented, and works, significantly, as a separate development stream from the now stable tree.
