No. Back-end as defstructs is only in the "master" branch.

A back-end, anonymous or not, may have no parent at all.

We can also store the full back-end object instead of its name. In this
case, an unnamed back-end is not the same as nil. Alas, this variable
was introduced for compatibility, which that solution kinda defeats.

Speaking about compatibility, previous export framework didn't have
anonymous back-ends. Handling the "nil" case would give us nothing more.
