No problems. They can continue to jump their current canopy.

I hope not. People who are physically unable to control their canopies using all the controls should stay on a larger canopy. Imagine what will happen if they break a toggle line down low; they would be unable to flare. At that point the only thing that would save their lives is being on a larger canopy.

Note that you cannot currently get an A license under the ISP without being able to do front riser turns so this won't normally come up.
