I’d expect that in the case of an assignee subject to the RSA/LRSA, this would be a self-correcting issue - if the assignee or its successor does not pay their registration fee, the resources would eventually reclaimed by ARIN and eventually allocated via the waiting list. Other resources, however, could easily stagnate and require remediation work to either connect to the legal heir of the defunct assignee organization; just like biological persons, there should be some effort to locate potential heirs/successor organizations before officially declaring the resource abandoned. To my knowledge, no such process exists.
