 - If the original one is reflashed, it'll be an admin again :-)

 - For a school with more than one teacher, grant the 'course creator'
right to all the teachers, or all the senior teachers. Course creators
can assign other course creators.

 - If all the course-creator-blessed XOs disappear or are replaced,
yes, you're in a pickle and you'll need root on the server to enable
the true moodle admin and use it to bless another user. Maybe I can
write a commandline script that does that.
