Prime universe is over.

No creative team is going to put themselves at a disadvantage by trying to adhere to the seven hundred plus hours of previously produced material.
That really goes for any previously produced material, including the Abramsverse. A new creative team would give themselves an advantage by starting over from scratch and redo things their way.
I tend to agree. But it would be way easier to stay consistent with the six hours of material Abrams produces than seven hundred hours made by dozens of different creators over four decades.

Continuing on in the Abramsverse would be less creatively restrictive than returning to the Prime Timeline.
Not necessarily, because continuity is continuity. A new Trek series will have to deal with it regardless of it being six hours or six hundred hours long. Like technobabble, continuity is best done sparingly. A new Trek series would be better served dealing with new characters and situations unique to itself rather than referring to past ones from an earlier production.
