Not mass balanced & cable failure

I found that many certified LSA aircrafts and, also, some standard FAR 23 certified aircrafts don't have mass-balanced surfaces. I'm interested in how they are designed to show freedom from flutter, especially control surface flutter and if these aircrafts can handle a disconnected freefloating surface emergency (due to cable failure, for example).
