How about marking them as having one or more of the following:

1. A dump is available upon request to <email>
2. A dump is online at <URL>
3. A SPARQL endpoint available at <URL>
4. Sitemap available at <URL>

Of course one might qualify availability/reliability as attributes to 2. 
- 4. but existence of a linked dataset shouldn't imply it being 
available online on a 24/7/36[45] basis.
