I agree. We are still far from all we can offer with v1.0.

If you check the specs, it says :

* Round 1: first complete draft of the specs
* Round 2: start the alpha development of libmatroska and update the 
specs when needed
* Round 3: start the beta development of libmatroska, the specs are 
frozen (no changes possible, only additions)
* Round 4: libmatroska becomes final (1.0.0) and the format too (version 1)

And we are only at Round 2 (this doesn't include the always growing 
codec IDs/formats).

What we need to go to round 3 :
- complex tracks support (DV)
- control-track
- menus

What will not be in v1.0 :
