According to the roadmap, 1.4 is likely to be the last milestone of the traditional Mozilla suite and the 1.4 branch will replace the 1.0 branch as the stable development path. mozilla.org is also proposing changes to the module ownership model including a move towards stronger leadership and the removal of mandatory super-review in some cases.

As if CIO's like being screwed around by MSoft with each pointless bloated upgrade. They can live with 1.4 as long as they want and can even work with the community to keep 1.4.x going. Try doing that with Office 95.

Smart CIO's realize that Open Source returns some control over their destiny to them. Dumb ones won't even notice that the new Mozilla 1.5 (not mandatory, not auto-installed, and not part of some Software Assurance licensing deal) no longer ships with Chatzilla and Venkman in the Tools menu.
