It seems that you need to talk to your marketing folks. By stating
upfront that the product is "functionally incomplete," you are shooting
yourself in the foot. Turn the fact that this has 25 bug-free features
into a selling point, highlighting the new functionality which will be
added with each new release. "We're doing it right from the beginning.
Just stand by and watch us grow," or something along those lines.

If you've done something and done it right, don't ever intimate that you
haven't finished the job. We've talked over and over about the bugs in
even the so-called industry standard apps, your product is already ahead
of that pack!
