Only 2 Milestone members left in the DCU

And they're Static and (just barely) Hardware. In the following Q&A with Dan DiDio (via Titans Tower Monitor), he manages to be lethargic as usual, yet signals that the Milestone entry to the DCU was but a short stay:
5. kryptofan1 asked:
Do you have plans for the Milestone characters (other than Static in the Teen Titans) after the Brave and Bold stories?

DiDio: At this particular time, we have Static in the Teen Titans, and we're looking at a storyline that might be built around Static later in the run. But right now, no other plans.
And Static may not last much longer in the Titans either. Dwayne McDuffie, just a few months after his dismissal as writer of the Justice League, wrote on his own forum that DC wasted his time (via Robot 6):
Plans for a Static monthly were scrapped by DC last spring. Based on their actions, they never really wanted to publish the Milestone stuff, they wasted my time. We could have done a little deal for them to use Static without me having to spend so much money on lawyers.
Do I spot a lawsuit on the horizon? If he's smart, he'll sue for full reclamation of his properties, and publish them somewhere else other than DC. I won't be surprised if a]Static and Hardware are both halfway out of the DCU already, b]Static won't last much longer in TT, especially if it's canceled, and c]DC may have difficulty even publishing any stories already written with them in trades because of the copyright suits that may well come up soon. But DiDio's done what to deserve that, and I won't feel sorry for him if he ends up in an embarrassing position thanks to his mistreatment of McDuffie.
