Apocalypse also went out of its way to seperate the Jedi from Coruscant, and to have an open storyline with various directions it could go thereafter. It could dive back into the EU, or it could go on it's own tangent involving a new threat. It could cameo Sith for the sake of it, it could have the Tribe spend the ST hiding on Kesh and the One Sith hiding on Korriban. Nice and wide. The PT didn't do a great deal of damage because authors purposely didn't pin it down. It was nebulous and vague and so it didn't hurt to have it changed somewhat.
