Many thanks to Andrew Leonard and Alok Jha, who have discovered the Philips Econic. Here’s the relevant bit of their flyer (warning: 9.9MB PDF):

Yes, that really does say “dimmable”. And Jha says that this is the “new bulb that will hopefully make the doubters shut up”.

When I moved into my new apartment in 2005, we ended up needing a huge number of 40W reflectors, all on dimmers, which between them consume an insane amount of electricity. What’s more, they need very frequent replacing, which is non-trivial. If I can just replace them with dimmable LEDs which last for 25 years, I will be a very happy person indeed.
