Are you sure that removing such registrations is the best thing to do?

You don't know what the user is going to do; maybe they will be using it 
continuously, or maybe it'll be backgrounded. It's impossible to 
determine, so you can't assume any given registration is stale, and it 
is reasonable to attempt to contact the registrant for any given inbound 
call, even if the attempt is futile because it has gone unreachable.

Meanwhile, the moment the endpoint is "woken up"[1] via a push 
notification, it will re-register and overwrite the stale contact 
binding instead of adding an additional one, provided that the match 
mode[2] is set correctly.
