I thought when DF users die the fruit reforms. So...grave robbing perhaps? Or the powers move to a nearby fruit transforming it into the 'new' mera mera fruit, like how the artificial fruits were made.
Also, I don't see anybody eating Ace's fruit. Luffy will probably keep it for himself, until he finds One Piece and then just adds it to the pile. I've predicted in the past that the true nature of OP is just a collection of precious items from Rogers crew, and perhaps other crews that made it to raftel over the generations.
The one lone exception I could see, is if the fruit was given to somebody like Colby. Given how Luffy got his DF from Shanks and the mentor like relationship he had towards him, I could see Colby gaining a DF in the same manner. It's kind of like a passing of the torch (no pun intended) scenario.
