This dist has no .pm files, so it won't be in 02packages. If it's not in 02packages, it won't appear under /module.

I wouldn't say it's valid. Actually, you would want protect that namespace by providing packages. Otherwise people can upload a module with the same name and your documentation will officially be gone.
What SCO is doing is neither right nor wrong. I'd rather see distributions use package declarations if they want to be indexed and shown. Everything else calls for trouble.
