Beta is last-chance for changes that impact localizations so get those string changing fixes and features landed ASAP or let email@example.com know if you're going to have trouble getting them in before Beta.

He didn't post it everywhere - it was posted on the Firefox web pages (the bit you quoted was only added a couple of weeks ago) and in the Firefox forums.
My impression is that developers on the core/seamonkey side don't generally see a need to be looking up stuff about Firefox. And Ben isn't too bothered about what happens on the core side, as long as it works well enough for him to release Firefox on top of.
I don't see this is a huge issue - I guess the plan is for Firefox to return to the trunk some time after 1.0, and at that point it will pick up the improvements that have happened in the mean time.
The only question I'd have is over the timing of Firefox. Using 1.7 and not 1.8 assumes that the Firefox bits will actually be ready before 1.8 is. If we see a 1.7-based Firefox 1.0 shipping a month after Mozilla 1.8 final, that won't be so great.
