I don't think that it can be described as "abandonment". The vowel
system was only ever used for a limited range of texts, and continues to
be used for a limited range of texts to this day, in parallel to use of
the 22CWSA for most other texts written in the script.

Even more so the accent system which, except possibly as a conceit, is
only ever applied to the Biblical text.
