I think you should open a ticket with the Developer Support and they can create a bug report for you. Then the developers can decide if it's a bug or not. My gut feeling says that it's probably by design.

Either you satisfy them like yourself that want pages that it is impossible to create pages below, or you satisfy them who got users that select no page types by mistake and then complains to the partners that it is impossible to create pages under certain pages.

Will get back with their answer.

Look likes it have to be a dummy page.
