Yes. It would be great to support 1.x.

Dijit it pushing the envelope farther than the other toolkits, and 
testing against configurations other toolkits might not even consider, 
such as images-off high contrast mode, jaws and windoweyes a11y, and 
full keyboard access... all while maintaining enough bling to hang with 
the cool kids.

It doesn't necessarily mean what you need from dijit/dojo won't work on 
FF 1.x... just that the decision to "support" it isn't promised.
