once all 21 million bitcoins have been mined, will a block be valid if its coinbase's output is 0 BTC (assuming there are no transactions with fees in the block)?

Blocks are already valid with the coinbase reward set to 0 - the reward is allowed to be less than the maximum allowed.

A corner case to keep in mind if we ever want to prohibit zero value outputs!

Bitcoin will not be compromised

Coinbase shouldn't reach 0 until 4*32=128 years later.
