They've dumped most of the stories of far more prominent characters than Vandal Savage. I don't see them worrying about that.
But they haven't dumped much of the Green Lantern stuff, and he's involved in that; he's crucial to the origins of the Bat tribe. I don't think prominence is playing as much of a role in what they've dropped and what they haven't, outside of Batman and Hal Jordan. It's all about proximity to the big storylines, and Savage is pretty connected that way.
On the other hand, there's no reason why this can't be an Earth-2 title; wasn't Savage a Justice Society villain when he began?
