> Assuming that within reason the rust does not fall off the bell, does a
steel bell get lighter or 
heavier over time?

I think that is bad assumption. The belfry of steel bells is normally
riddled with dust everywhere. It just flakes off the bell. Also, iron is
just one component of steel. There is plenty of carbon in it which may form
carbon dioxide (although that would need checking) thus reducing the weight.
