Well, apparently the mystery disintegrated ring _was_ a valve stem seal. According to the mechanic however, they're not important! They get put on during installation, but since the VW is a flat engine, not much oil gets up there anyway.

Well, the word of one guy in a VW workshop on a Monday afternoon is good enough for me, especially if it saves us having to pull the heads off and do serious work! I guess if we don't corner too hard then we might be OK...
