I'm actually shocked that Bad Robot would have even expected them to stop making products based on the original series.
For what it's worth, it's hardly unprecedented for the way brand Management works.
For example, in 1996, the BBC withdrew most of the back catalogue of Doctor Who VHS releases (including one that had only been available for three weeks) to avoid brand confusion with the new, shiny, high-production value TV movie. And more recently, the brand managers responsible for last year's Doctor Who Experience initially didn't want to feature anything that predated the current Doctor (yes, the current Doctor, not the 2005 restart of the series which might just have been understandable), as he was the current brand.
