Could there be some technicality where by if Jon dies briefly say his heart stops, Bowen Marsh says 'and now his watch ends'. However Tormund the Blower of Horns gives Jon CPR and revives him, is Jon out of the Night's Watch. It seems like that would be a cheap technicality, but is it a possibility?
Given the "place of death" thing and Varamyr's holy-foreshadowing-Batman prologue (Ghost is "a second life fit for a king
"), I've kind of resigned myself to the probability that Jon is going to die, warg into Ghost, but be resurrected in some way, intentionally or not.
My original thinking, if the death-warging happened, was that Jon would warg into Ghost and use the direwolf as a placeholder. Melisandre would use red god magic to resurrect his body, which Jon would then warg back into. So basically a combination of old gods (warging, ice) and red god (red priest, fire). Just another "both ice and fire" motif for him.
Whether that death frees him from the Watch on a technicality, who knows. I'd rather Jon say, "To hell with this, I'm leaving" than try to walk out on a loophole. But that's me.
