Worst case? Ugh, this is just sensational mess. Abbots of monasteries used to be "for life" and now are generally simply open-ended. An abbot leads until he doesn't believe it is best for the community for him to continue. It's been fine.

It is a shift for sure and this is all just rumor of folks reading the tea leaves, but if it comes to pass, the world and the Church will continue on just fine.
