If the frames are fully sealed and NONE is dripping, then fermenting is probably a minimal problem. If you plan to start over though, I'd try to save the honey for the next generation of bees.
Consumption (if you treated with apistan strips, etc., ) "according to the directions" should be safe (again though, I would stay away from any that isn't sealed.
Of course, I'd strongly suggest inspection of the hives by a state or local apiest, just to be sure that the hives didn't die from American or European Foulbrood or other diseases that would transmit into the NEXT generation of bees you install. No matter what, I think you need to know WHY they died ESPECIALLY if you lost a hive as early as November.
Personally, if I thought that the frames would hold up and not ferment, I'd save them for the next generation of bees. It will give them a great boost as the start out in the Spring, especially with all the remaining frames that are drawn out. That alone lets the queen go right to work laying eggs without having to wait for drawn comb.
Again though, do yourself and any other beekeepers in your area and have the hives inspected.
Good luck and hope more people reply.
