This would be OK.

Do we really want to tag unreleased development versions?

Or, like what xfree does,
1.x.y for small y is a stable release
1.x.y for large y is a prerelease for 1.(x+1).0
This would mean that we do not mean to do prereleases for stable
Anyway, I do not think that you plan to do enough releases to warrant
two development trees. I think that doing small changes and frequent
releases will be much better.
So you distribute 1.0.2, 1.0.3 with small changes and then, when you
have a bit more work done, switch to 1.1.0.
The reason why I proposed these high fixlevel versions is to avoid the
situation we have where 1.0.0 would refer to 1.0.0 itself or any of
the prereleases, and all those had different characteristic wrt to how
they should be used (I am sure that LyX will fail with some of them).
As you can see, the situation is not clear to me either.

Yes, this part will be easy.

Just remove -W for now, then.
