Or is it possibly for the entirely practical reason that he is dead, and 
therefore not able to contest the account if he'd wanted to?

The fates of most of the characters in the Paarfi books are not known, 
save for the ones who we know are dead, and the ones who Paarfi directly 
states are still alive at the time of his writing. (This includes 
Khaavren, Piro and Ibronka.)
