Actually I think it was more a matter of wanting Hector's Dr Fate swept off the game board ASAP to make room for Gerber's Post-IC reboot. Johns may have had long term plans for Hector and Lyta but figured if eh didn't have time to work it through to completion it was better to just drop it midstream rather than rush a conclusion.
