I wouldn't say that. CT during his lifetime was willing to let others edit and publish his father's papers, including Hammond & Scull (Artist and Illustrator, expanded Tom Bombadil, expanded Farmer Giles), Verlyn Flieger (Kullervo, Autrou & Itroun, expanded Smith, expanded On Fairy-Stories (with Doug Anderson)), John Rateliff (Mr Baggins, Return to Bag-end) and Carl Hostetter et al (linguistic papers), and I think there's no reason for the Estate to do otherwise; in fact, perhaps all the more reason to delegate since CT can't do any more himself.
My question was not so much about the legality of publishing further works from J.R.R. Tolkien as whether Christopher Tolkien had left much, if anything, to publish.
