Default Non-precision approach without a published MAP?

The airport is only served by one instrument approach, a VOR/GPS approach,

Until this approach, I had not encountered a non-precision approach without
a published missed approach point. Is this more common than my experience
has provided to date?

Unless I am missing something obvious, the VOR is the missed approach
point. There are hundreds (thousands?) of approaches like this where
the missed begins at the navaid.

It also occurs BEYOND the departure end of the runway...

So what? I would consider a MAP that begins before the runway to be an
exception rather than the rule. That's what VDP's are for. Here are a
few VOR approaches that begin beyond the departure end of the runway.
