Don't underestimate the power of 1.0. Especially the press and the semi-informed public needs some point of reference onto which they can pin the "release" of the "first finished version". Not to put up a version 1.0 (or some appropriatly named milestone) might be more truthful but it would be missing out on a big marketing opportunity.
