It's not permanent - the licenses are often renewed and upgraded, so some shows are (unfortunately) lost, many are getting more regions added over time. It comes down to what the publisher allows, but especially with the VRV partnership, I've seen a big increase in regions/shows lately. I don't use VRV myself, so I can't comment on its service, but it does seem to be helping even on just CR's side of things.

While some anime do see an expansion of the regions they are available to, the vast majority do not.

The regions for the autumn 2017 simulcasts can be found in the first message of this topic:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-1001735/fall-2017-simulcasts

The regions Blend-S is currently available to are:

North America, Central America, South America, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and Ireland.

This is typical for an Aniplex of America title, and the odds of any region expansion for those are near zero.
