It is my interpretation that mozilla.org exists to produce CODE, not binaries. It is my interpretation that mozilla.org releases binaries only for the purpose of testing the CODE.
If mozilla.org releases binaries for any other purpose than testing THE CODE then those binaries should and will be viewed as the release of a end-user application. But the CODE was not meant to represent a feature complete end-user application and therefore any binaries derived solely from that CODE can not possible meet the standards that the general end-user will expect.
Obviously some people, myself included, will find 1.0 binaries suitable for everyday use, but that is irrelevant! MOZILLA.ORG PRODUCES CODE, NOT BINARIES!
