Are the lab caches currently included when counting milestones? If not, is it planned in the future?

At the moment they are not and my impression is the majority would not think to change that considering, after all, that lab caches are quite a bit different from the traditional ones.

I would disagree with you that most would not want that changed - they are finds, they are counted on the official GC stats toward milestones and they add to your total so that when your total is a milestone they've been counted.
I agree many would like it. It is difficult to match best caches to A two different milestones. I use always the count on a geocaching.com. So the milestones here are "wrong" since my first one hundred. Would it be impossible to add a ticked box where you could chose whether to include or exclude lab caches from the milestones list.
