3.5e Dodge Feat + Enlarge Person

If a fighter with a 14 DEX is enlarged from Medium to Large size (losing 2 DEX), can he still use his Dodge feat (which has a 13 DEX prerequisite)?

The immediate, easy answer is yes.  The prereq is only applicable when selecting the feat.  Once you have the feat, you can use it regardless of your ability score.

On the other hand, it doesn't make sense that a character who's had his/her DEX lowered (say by magical means) to 2, or 4 or 6, should be able to Dodge.  So if it's lowerd to 12 (i.e. lower than the prereq), shouldn't they lose the ability to Dodge? 
By the rules as written, they would temporarily lose their feats if they can't meet the pre-reqs.

I love it when there is an easy answer.  Thanks. ;)
