No, just use explicite language and dont exect anybody to be able to
understand the true meaning of your euphemisms. A deadline is a deadline, no
matter what qualifiers you add to it. There is really no difference in
saying "we will ship at x" or "we hope and plan to ship at x".

You could write "we know we will not ship before x"  is most likely more
honest :)
