The old continuity hemmed in the dramatic potential of a Kirk and Spock movie, we know when one dies and know that the other lives deep into the 24th century. It's tough to ramp up the danger when you know nothing can happen to the characters your writing.
I'll bet you any money in the world that none of the crew are killed off in the 1 or 2 more films we're likely to get.

The dramatic potential is as hemmed in as it always was.
You might be right, you might be wrong. But the actions that are taken by these characters aren't controlled by twenty year old movie and TV episodes anymore.
