I and others have thought about this before. But Hatsumi has made sure that those around him and in line for potential succesion know the whole enchilada. As long as the branches overseas make honest effforts to keep coming back to the source, I have little fear that there will be parts lost like that to the world. The branches that choose to not make honest efforts will have to deal with the potential of them not maintaining the whole total.
