You could use it now as a security (which the US Internal Revenue Service requires), except that the max denominator is still 1E6. You could work around that by using milli-bitcoin with a 1E5 max denominator.
2.8 will be able to support the additional required precision, though Christian Stimming and I are at the moment having a frank discussion about what's the best way to get there: See the "Rethinking Numerics" thread in this list.
It isn't going to be treated as a currency until the ISO's 4217 Maintenance Agency says it is one.
