I suppose this is just by technical incapabilities. People leak
prefixes, hit max-pref limters, forget to clear sessions or don't bother
increasing limits, they migrate gear from Cisco to Brocade or Juniper
and cannot recover encrypted MD5 passwords... or management decisions
decide to pull from an exchange.

I don't consider this "de-peering" a peering dispute or an offensive
act. The majority of vanished BGP adjacencies are due to laziness or
technical limitations.
