- DeSitter cosmological horizon stability?

If the universe keeps expanding at an accelerated rate (given by the cosmological constant) then the universe would approach a DeSitter spacetime where there would be a cosmological horizon that would radiate just as the event horizon of a black hole radiates Hawking radiation

I thought that once this state is reached, the universe would stay like that, but I recently discovered that this horizon could evaporate just like a black hole and the cosmological constant would dilute (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6560872).

Is this true? Even if that happened and the expansion would stop being accelerated by a cosmological constanr, what would happen then after?
