This statement seems to me to have a underlying assumption that is entirely wrong.

Bash did not go away and bash will not go away. The shell you use interactively has nothing to do with the shell a script invokes.

There is no reason to change a working script from bash to zsh just because the interactive shell you use has changed.

There may be other reasons to change a script for new features or better behavior (For example, I converted many sh scripts to bash because of these types of issues, but I also still have plenty of sh scripts as well).
