I think it's a great system. I don't think clients should be comissioning work they don't yet have the money to pay for. On a long, high budget project, the milestones make that entirely manageable. You comission each milestone as you can afford to pay for it. I don't see the problem.
I'm probably dating myelf here, but on reading parts of this thread, I keep hearing the dude from Popeye - "I'd gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today!"
The new funded milestone system protects freelancers from the Wimpys of the world...
...ugh, can't get it out of my head

For fixed price, though, there's no way for the freelancer to get paid without you approving the work. So if they don't do it, you don't approve. Again, I can't see a problem here.
