Abaddon is Kormir now. The old Abaddon is gone.
Really, though, the bigger problem is that the 'fallen' gods are going to be even MORE anathema to those races that already don't like the human gods. To the asura, they're just cogs in the Eternal Alchemy like the Six, but they're lesser cogs. To the charr, they're just another bunch of powerful beings that expect to be worshipped, and if hypothetically there was some vestige of Abaddon that still remained, by now educated charr are probably aware of the connection between Abaddon and the titans, and therefor the Flame Legion. The norn already acknowledge (but do not worship) the gods as spirits of abstract concepts, and while by and large they can respect the concepts represented by the human gods, they're likely to have less appreciation (or at least no more appreciation) for the fallen gods. The sylvari are agnostic, but non-Nightmare sylvari are going to be more inclined to go for the (relatively) good pantheon than the fallen one if they were to become religious.
Basically, there's no reason why any of the races that would disagree with following the human gods would turn around and decide that following the failed human gods would be a better idea.
It's far easier to present the more overtly religious aspects as having been human racials all along that just happened to have been first unlocked by dervishes, and have the rest as being a form of magic available to all irrespective of belief just like the others.
