As I've described it somewhere before I use it (and SCHEDULED) for
sending messages to myself in the future. The DEADLINE means to me:

  You've got to finish this job before certain time. But don't worry
  about it if it is not org-deadline-close *now*, you won't find it
  on your todo list too.

SCHEDULED means more or less the same except that there is no date I
should complete the job before and I put -SCHEDULED>="<now>" in all my
filters. For example I've sent send the announcement yesterday, changed
the the keyword to WAITING and put "SCHEDULED: <2010-02-13 sob>".  Then
if I wouldn't have found your reply in my inbox by Saturday I would see
the WAITING item on my todo list.

This is kind of artificial limb util someone writes
org-reality-depend.el. I haven't decided yet how to cope with all this
conditions on a timed agenda view.

Miłego dnia,
