EDIT: Also, I don't think i see why getting a Rift now (with the understanding you're getting something that is still improving and is not a commercial product necessarily meant for consumer consumption) would affect development of it in any way. I doubt the folks doing the manufacturing are being pulled away from development duties. Plus the manufacturing process itself may need testing and tweaking, too, so I doubt you'd be causing any kind of slowdowns to development by getting one now if you really, really wanted one (again, understanding and accepting some of the limitations in the current version, of course.)
You'll find that the manufacturing of the Rift isn't exactly speedy, so when there are more enthusiasts than developers placing orders, it delays developers from getting the developer kit, which means developers aren't able to do developer duties.
