If we're going to create a placeholder that a) doesn't count toward the placeholder limit b) can't be reprioritized and c) has an impossible-to-express weight, it would be a new special construct.  I'm almost tempted to give it index -1 so that it can't be directly referenced, to further emphasize that it's special.

(As an aside, I was kind of disappointed the proposal to allow zero-weight dependencies with these semantics didn't get any traction back in HTTP/2.)
