Perhaps it is like an old joke: "How many Microsoft programmers does it take to change a lightbulb?" "None, they just make darkness the new standard." I guess, if uptime is a measure of your promised availability, then if you promise total unavailability, your uptime is 100% if no-one can reach you during the measured period. Not terribly useful, however, and likely to get breached, when those with means want to find out what you're hiding.
