Alexa Skill Disable Notification?

We have the Smart Home Skill in developer mode and it’s working quite well. We do maintain state information on our end such as listing applications associated with a customer's account, discovered device lists, etc. We noticed when the smart home skill is disabled on alexa.amazon.com, we are not notified of this action and therefore the "Amazon Alexa" application remains associated with our customer’s account.

Is there a notification/call we're missing such as logout (eg: DELETE /oauth2/token) or something of that nature so we can cleanup application state on our end?

Can anyone on the Alex dev team assist with answering this question?

No. It's irritating, but currently there is no (automatic) way to know if someone has disabled the skill to allow you to programmatically delete them from the database. Obviously, if you are keeping some identifying information (email, account #, etc) you can go through and clean things up. But there is nothing that Amazon provides for this.
