Service life of a Shimano 3n71 dynohub

How long should a Shimano 3nXX dyno hub last? Just rolled 10k miles on mine and wondering if it should be re-greased. Can it be serviced? I've read here on the net that there are wear and replace unit. So far it's running smooth as far as a dynohub can run smooth. (Notchy but not excessively)
