Well, SHOULD does not equal CAN or OUGHT TO. I can think of several 
singers who should have retired but did not like Bob Dylan 
f'rinstance whom I also despised when he was young but that is a 
matter of personal taste. whereas the loss of the upper part of the 
natural range with age does not equate to a natural LOWER RANGE.

this is opinion, as I know nothing.
