Because the two are independant of each other. The 1.0 branch, from which 1.0.1 will be released, only gets "important" bug fixes and then probably only ones which are proven stable or important to security.

The two are independent branches. And IMHO, it is better to test the bug fixes in the "add new features" branch to verify they do not reduce stability, than to check fixes into the "stake in the ground" where they may cause problems.
