I'm not sure to understand how you use the keyword MILESTONE.  Can you
be a bit more specific, maybe give an example of your Org file and the
expected agenda view?

I can think of three ways of implementing something like milestones:
TODO keywords, tags and properties.  Did you already try to use tags
and/or properties?  

For me, a milestone would be an ordinary task with an additionnal bit of
information, and I would put this piece of information in a property.
For example:

| * TODO Release 1.2
|   DEADLINE: <2007-12-15 sam>
|   :Milestone: Unicorn
|   :END:
| * TODO Fix bug #322

I would also be interested in this.   Did you make any progress on this
since you last posted your question?
