Beware of survivor bias.  I don't think there's any way to predict which religious rules are going to stick and which won't. 

For instance, Jewish Kashruth and Islamic Hallal have pretty much stayed the same. Except for some Conservative Jews and most Reform Jews....

And if we start with Christianity, the "rules" on fasting, eating meat, etc. have swung pretty wildly over time.
