Used 400 mm lens -- possible gray market and service?

I'm looking at a used EF 400 mm f/5.6L USM lens. I am uncertain whether this is still serviceable. This is not sold by a Canon dealer, so I am not certain whether this particular lens was sold for U.S. market or is gray market.

The warrantee is not the issue, since it's used, and presumably more than a year old. The question is whether Canon will still service this discontinued (and possibly gray market) lens. Anyone know?
