We've been tossing this scenario around at work thanks to a training situation. If a VFR flight following acft is handed off to you by approach control, (you are center) and when he checks in he says he wants to terminate FF but he is still in approach controls airspace, are you REQUIRED to notify the approach control if he is just going from a discrete code to squawking 1200? Not asking if you care or if you think approach control would care, I'm asking if there is a legal obligation per .65 to notify approach of the termination?

*disclaimer, I don't think approach cares nor would I if the situation was reversed.
