Just because someone decided to take a nod in a certain direction and acknowledge someone else's work doesn't mean Dooku's head is going to come back to life and take revenge against Palpy.
Oh don't get me wrong, Maul is perhaps my favorite Sith from Prequal era - I;m just curious as to how many other ideas like mecha maul they will try realistically incorporating into TCW (example: like a ridiculous parallel universe version of Anakin or something).
