discuss Can an extension shut down?

Just wondering if an extension can be shut down, if it doesn't perform? There could be multiple reasons:

1) Low registration and hence, low revenue
2) Low adoption
3) Low revenue
4) Continuous losses

For example, an extension like .asia which might be garnering low response and has cost associated with running it could decide to shut down the extension. Is it possible?

Also not sure if there are platforms where one could find the financials of how these extensions are doing just to have one more data point to see if it is worth investing in?
