I think the tendency to concentrate on the older generation over that of newer generation of characters is probably not a good idea. They are falling into the same trap as the Expanded Universe novels.
According to the article, they're focusing on the older gen before before transitioning to the newer gen. It's not a bad strategy - but, like all things, it will depend on the manner the strategy is implemented, in how smoothly they make the transition.
That is their current plan. A plan that could easily change if Disney and Abrams instead decides to go another direction after VII like they did after pushing the previous writer out.
That is the new plan originally it was going to be the other way around.
