I think this is a good idea. I have tested it some time ago and quite a lot of 
things worked as expected. It's IMHO better to release Kopete. This way user 
find bugs and (hopefully) report them. This makes a "better" release for KDE 
4.1 possible. If we just hold it out from KDE 4.0, users will not have this 
option, and instead will report the same bugs in KDE 4.1.

Btw: It would probably be a good idea to "look" for new Kopete devs. It is a 
very often used application, and I think there would be for sure new 
developers which are interested in working on it, but don't know where they 
could start in KDE. planetkde? dot?
