Capiot has no less (fewer, says Stannis) than 6 11th placings of the season - Majka only 3. Should that be the tie-breaker?
We've never really thought of a tie breaker, have we? Most 11th placings would be 100% coherent with the spirit of the game, although one might argue that the quality of those top10s will tell you more about the consistency of the rider.

We could also refrain from awarding the 2019 title thus making their seasons truly winless.

What is harder to achieve without a win:

1) top tens in 4 stages, TTT and GC at Giro and La Vuelta, or

2) top tens in 4 stages and PC at Tour de Valonie, Binck Bank Tour and PostNord Danmark Rundt?
 
Generally, if there are two people ex-aequo on first, then 2nd place is not awarded. It's like:
  1. Capiot, Majka 3.Cima 4. Costa, Venturini, Vallee 7. Consonni, Kruijswijk
Happens a lot in some sports disciplines like ski-jumping when having an equal point result is not that uncommon. If there are two people ex-aequo on first and you're the next behind, you then get third.
 
This is different. Majka and Capiot have the same amount of points in first, but the entire point of this is about not being in first.
Though… I suppose that would make everyone but Majka and Capiot the (non)winners of this…
 
I think a tie-breaker could be the lesser number of 2nd places followed by the lesser number of 3rd places etc. A true top10 without win should be as anonymus as possible.
I don't agree. Someone with ten second places and no wins is more baffling than someone who only collects places in the lower part of the top 10. The more second places, the better.

In the same spirit, there should be a list with most top 10 after first win, which would clearly be won by Jasper Philipsen. Or simply "longest streak of top 10 without a win".

It sort of depends.

Someone with ten second places and no wins is indeed baffling but someone who managed 25 top10's without a single 2nd is more baffling than someone who had a couple.
