Um yes. They exist. You can't create them. You can't do anything with them.
SvOK() assumes that for "truth" they will be something like a reference.

I think that that is the only assumption that I had to make in advance.
They're also now the first type up from SVt_NULL, so doing anything to
them should cause code to enter sv_upgrade().

I hope that that's enough to be future proof, for when the folks working on 
six-on-five come to work on them.
