Do you mean titles without any copy of original (missing dump) or bad dump? If so, do you have some examples?
Both. At Atarimania is well visible is there STX, or in rares cases some ST/MSA image of original. I think that %-age of missing is pretty high, some 15% . There are certainly still some bad dumps, at some of them there is note about error and appeal to send good image.
Examples: missing dump: Uridium
Bad dump: can't remember at moment any
But there are some releases with errors too: http://www.atarimania.com/game-missing- ... 15997.html

Indeed, Atarimania is currently site most active in supporting preservation by hosting images, SW database and related.
They want STX images as I know. Not sure will host some SCP or KryoFlux. Conversion is good in most cases.
