There are several packages available which seem to me to cover the 
entire range:
- Introduction Package: symlinked (tar.gz) and without symlinks (zip) 
(TYPO3 4.5 and later)
- Source: tar.gz and zip (only typo3_src.x.x.8 directory)
- Blank Package: symlinked (tar.gz) and without symlinks (zip)

Source + dummy = Blank Package, so why do you need the Dummy actually?

If there is a good use case for it, the release managers might be 
convinced to recreate it.
