But "orphaned" works are not in the public domain. They're still protected by copyright, but no one knows who holds the copyright. It may be that no living person or existing corporate entity does. Unfortunately, thanks to copyright law, they don't just enter the public domain, and thus no one can reprint or republish them.

Your comment is akin to saying that it's "not worth the investment" to buy steak over hamburger because it all turns to shit eventually.
