HTML Menu Item at root level

I cannot seem to get an HTML Menu Item to display at the root level using the MenuItemLink-HtmlMenuItem.cshtml template. When at the root level, it uses the MenuItemLink.cshtml template and generates some strange link to a ContentItem that doesn't exist.

When I place an HTML Menu Item as a child of another Menu Item, it uses the proper template.

Is this how it was designed to work? Is it possible to place an Html Menu Item at the root level of a menu and have it use the MenuItemLink-HtmlMenuItem.cshtml template?

Thanks as always

Also...is it possible to easily add a Url field to the HTML Menu Item, or would that require a new custom menu item type?
