No.  If you look into the vim-7.3.003-1 tar archive, you'll see that
there's still a symlink called vi:

bash$ tar tvjf vim-7.3.003-1.tar.bz2 usr/bin
drwxr-xr-x corinna/vinschen  0 2010-08-19 13:24 usr/bin/
lrwxrwxrwx corinna/vinschen  0 2010-08-19 13:24 usr/bin/vi -> vim-nox.exe
-rwxr-xr-x corinna/vinschen 2084 2010-08-19 13:23 usr/bin/vimtutor
lrwxrwxrwx corinna/vinschen    0 2010-08-19 13:24 usr/bin/ex -> vim-nox.exe
-rwxr-xr-x corinna/vinschen 13838 2010-08-19 13:24 usr/bin/xxd.exe
-rwxr-xr-x corinna/vinschen 1548814 2010-08-19 13:23 usr/bin/vim-nox.exe

I don't know why it disappeared for you.
