I think the terminology here is the source of some confusion. I think
when you (Jono) say "milestones" people hear specifically the already
defined "alpha and beta" Milestones.  I don't think you mean that. I
think you are using the term "milestones" differently, to just mean
"chosen dates for testing".

I think it's fair to say that flavors can choose a higher frequency
for a testing cadence than just the alpha and beta dates,

Cheers, Rick
