well, # of documented APIs is not the only aspect to be taken into
you have stuff like:
- configurability
- scalability
- speed
to look after. As of today, most of those items are not looked into (not
for the 1.0 target), but it doesn't mean work isn't needed
more over, don't forget  that :
# of implemented API
# of documented API
is an evolving target, as the documented APIs evolve over time
for example, the file I/O stuff can be considered over 90% for Wine 9x
(except the SMB stuff), while it way lower on a NT perspective.

IMO, the % is more an indication of what users could expect for a
< 25, forget about using builtin
25/50 : very low usage, may work in some rare cases
50/75 : good basic capabilities, may work for mainstream application
75/100 : solid implementation, bugs remaining
