Our company plans to use Magento as the core for an e-hosting business serving the gift industry.
Will magento function well with 1000 stores using the multi-store feature?
Each store will have a separate URL.
Product data from 1000+ vendors will exist in a central database.

I wanted to do the same thing and I was never able to get it to work.  I ended up having to clone the files and the database over and over.  It makes updates really hard also.

The database part can be done out of the box. The management by individual merchants (if that’s what you want) may be more problematic.
