The other thing is, even if the decomposition process is slowed, these zombies are obviously rotting away-- how many months or years will it be before the zombie herds become completely unjustifiable?
One of the producers (Darabont?) said some time ago that, rather than decomposing quickly and completely, the "older" zombies become "mummified" and therefore can be around for quite a while.
In a way, this makes sense. Normally environmental conditions et al and time would help anything decompose. But if the virus makes the zombie more resilient, then they would be around a lot longer.
