    Hey there,
    I don't know of any; however, you could just place a piece of floor at your ceiling ht. and then add a floor outlet. Once placed, just use the new visibility overide in 2008 to hide the floor. (You could do the same with a wall and put the outlet at ceiling mtd. ht. and then hide the wall.)

    Good luck

    Or, just make a new ceiling based family and copy the geometry from the floor based one and paste it into the ceiling based one. That way you're not making fake objects and having to worry about them scheduling, overriding them in every section and elevation view, etc...
