A work-around may be to make a footprint that comprises two *.fp files.
One with the ordinary pins, pads and lines. And another with pads where 
the holes to be milled should go. Include some kind of alignment mark in 
both parts. Place the first part the usual way. Do
before you place the second part just on top of the first.
Move the mill lines to the dedicated milling layer with the [m] accel.

All fabs I know would accept (and expect) additional routing lines 
in the outline layer.
