Milestone behavior - direct child of the project

I have a large project with many milestones. Some of them are outputs of a parent task, however, it appears Milestones can only be a direct child of the project. In this model, Milestones become a catch all for activities related to that category and really takes away from the meaning of a Milestone in PMP world. If Clarizen does not support this yet, what would be the best way to structure this in Clarizen? For now, I only see to create parent tasks and nested children tasks to accomplish what I want. But I end up with a project that has no Milestones (in Calrizen that is). Any suggestions on the work around? Thank you!

In Clarizen the milestones should contain all activities required to achieve them. Even though this is different than MS Project, it has a lot of benefits (you can see aggregate progress on milestones, data rolls up, Roadmap visuals, etc.).
