The idea is that it was already QA-ed in all the prior 1.0-rc* releases 
during the last few weeks, and given the code freeze, the final 1.0 
release would resolve any remaining problems found in the rc series. 
Since 1.0 is considered Wine's first stable release, and the release 
candidates have undergone QA both upstream and in Debian, then the 1.0 
release can only be better than the beta stuff currently in lenny.

Also, in fact, there were no functional changes at all between 1.0-rc5 
and 1.0, hence any QA of the Debian rc5 release could easily count as QA 
of the final 1.0 release (that's only 3 days, though, but still an 
argument for at least medium urgency).

While I don't personally care all that much about what the urgency 
should be, a lot of people have been waiting for a stable Wine release 
forever, and now that there's finally one, they're going to want it in 
lenny... besides, I thought that, in fact, since it's no worse than 
whatever's already in lenny (conceivably, 1.0 could be worse than, say, 
0.9.58, but certainly not worse than 1.0-rc2), getting it into lenny 
quickly would, in fact, only give it more useful QA before lenny is frozen.

But, I guess, your call.
