Perhaps in the future we will see even more diversity, but I don't think the "Kagyu Practices" have been abandoned.

to six years (in six month increments with six month breaks back in the world)
based on the traditional Kagyu Curriculum. Of course, the usual Shambhala
hoops need to be jumped through to enter that program. If memory serves
one must have had werma transmission to enter, although the drupdra is
not based on the Shambhala terma. The people who complete it are still
Kagyu linneage holders.
So in some ways there seems to have been some repositioning in terms
of what is generally taught publicly, the backbone seems unchanged.
