Then I put a dummy .toc file in the .zip named "this isn't an addon, it doesn't need a toc file.toc" and it was still rejected on the basis of not having a .toc file.

I guess it's possible that they were looking for a .toc file named after the folder, but I couldn't be bothered any more and figured it wasn't really worth my time.
The .toc file part of their hosting system is automated. There's an extremely high chance no one read those names. Thinking about it, it probably looks for a valid .toc file, like the name matching the folder and actual .toc data.
