What operations were ceased? The Rivermen season ended. The team moved in the offseason. The Comets started playing the very next season. Even with massive turnover in staff and rosters from changing affiliation, that's a continuity of operations and a franchise's history, and is something that happens in teams all the time in franchises that don't move, like when a new owner steps in or a management shakeup is initiated or an affiliation is changed.

Same with the Aeroes becoming the Wild and the IceCats becoming the Rivermen prior to that.

And, again, the simple fact is that nobody considers the examples listed as folding. You're just making an argumentative point for why the definition and application of the term should be different, but it's not in line with how it's used in reality by anybody involved in the process.
