Hell, I'd even bet that Lucas might even do it while he's alive to make a few extra bucks. That's all special edition was. Lucas is more about $$$$ than protecting the integrity of his work. I doubt he re-released the original trilogy just so he culd have Greedo shoot first..........follow the money trail.
Actually, the living can't for at least 75 years. That's how long the estate/successor has to hold it before anything is done/becomes fair use etc. Also, as long as Lucy Wilson is there or her designated successor, nothing will change. She's only been overruled 1 time by Flannel Man with regards to story aproval, and that was which Solo kid died when.

And really the SE were more about now that his divorce was settled, raising capital to invest in the technology and abilities to make the prequals. It wasn't about profit motive since almost all of it was reinvested.
