Long term, I don't think they will keep the burst disk idea, it reduces re-usability. but short term it makes sense to get crew dragon flying, it isn't like they are using the Super Dracos for landing, only abort.

Obviously the non return valves/plumbing need re-engineering to avoid this issue in future when they do need re-usability.
