It would be easy to let major modes provide such a "syntactically valid
dummy".  For some languages it should be very easy (at least as easy as
guessing an offset), but for others the valid dummy that needs to be
used may depend on the context, and so may be just as hard as guessing
an offset.

In any case, leaving it empty may also result in "incorrect" reindentation
of the rest.
