[osis-core] special milestone element deletion

After trying to encode a text, I strongly feel that having a single
element to be used for all milestone-type tagging is the wrong solution.
Were do you expect one to place all attributes usually associated with a
tag? I've been 'hacking' them all into subtype as a '|' delimited list.
This can't be the best way to recommend to our users to encode these
I don't feel forcing a special element just because a textual situation
requires the anomaly of 'milestone'-type markup, because of XML rules,
is the proper solution.
A <q> is still a quote and the <q> tag has been specialized to contain
all the data for a quote.
forcing all that data into something like:
<milestone_Start type="q" subType="type:block|speaker:John|level:2" />
just doesn't seem to make sense.
