Our milestones are taken to be stable builds of our current
functionality; if the stability has not yet been achieved then I think
it is fine to keep publishing x86-64 as "snapshot" builds.  Making that
platform a 'milestone build with disclaimers' just makes the meaning of
milestones confusing IMHO.

If we are close to achieving x86-64 stability then having a short cycle
to include it in an M4 might make sense.
