Answer
Dear Behzad

The restriction suggested in codes are to prevent the architectural memebers being safe from cracking then they can be used for a cantilever structure as well provided tha you use the interstory drift which can be interpreted as relative drift ( drift per height ) in every point of the cantilever beam.
