I disagree to your conclusion here. - I would like to copy the data type
information from the contained value into a new "Nothing GVariant" in an
efficient way. I do not really want to know the concrete copied data type if I
would like that this operation will be supported in a generic way so that it can
be reused by other class libraries like "glibmm".

I can't say I really understand what you want, but in glibmm you can:
Glib::VariantBase v = Glib::VariantBase();
Which will create C++ VariantBase object that does not actually have an allocated
GVariant backing it, e.g. v.gobj() == NULL

In glibmm 2.36 it will be possible to test whether the GVariant is null or not by just
doing if (v), see bugĀ 690121.
