It's intentional. It's the only way I can think of to give people
single-click access to sub-areas of the site (notice that the parent
menu item is also a clickable link to another page) without taking up
space for all of them all at once.

You must have missed my comments about that visual indication being a
requirement of the final design. What I did was just a proof of
concept. The submenu would also always be visible when the user is
browsing within a particular section, too.

Did you use it? I don't think my implementation is all that bad. Ample
padding (which would need a little more around the "parent" menu items
themselves) is usually enough to keep things usable.
