Where did you find this GTD requirement?
Where did you find a GTD requirement that every Next Action must belong to a Project?

Changing the project name
If itīs your software that forces you to link all actions to a project and "miscellaneous" doesnīt feel right (it wouldnīt for me either), why donīt you name that project "Single actions to take".
At least it says clearly what should go in there and it forces you to think whether you are really dealing with a single action or is it something that should have its own project.
I assume your software lets you view you actions by context, if you can only view by project then I would say that you should look for a different software, the context view is crucial.
