I didn't know about Veronica Cale, and I hope we get her back.
Once they're fully developed, send them, wherever you like! However, once the Wonder-editors (not loan, but) give them away to other titles, where they're developed in dynamic ways and used effectively, why should D.C. give control of them back to the Wonder Woman comic, ..who, for whatever reason, couldn't figure out what to do with them?
If the Wonder Woman creative team gives Steve Trevor to Justice League or Team Seven, both of which are (hypothetically) out-selling Wonder Woman, why would D.C. EVER give editorial control of Steve back to Wonder Woman? It doesn't make any sense, and, for the record, ..I doubt the WW comic has any say in what happens with Steve Trevor, anymore. I doubt Steve Trevor is officially a Wondy character, anymore.
And that's pretty pathetic. Seriously, ..what, what ..WHAT is going on at Wonder Woman?
I didn't know about Veronica Cale, and I hope we get her back. Another great Wondy villain rotting on the vine,
1. At some point, Team Seven (which, putting your hypothetical aside for a moment, isn't selling well) might be over, JLA might have changed its roster (as team books tend to do after a while) and not have a place for Steve, and JL might not have a place for him either;
2. If, at some point, Steve has become really popular, DC might see putting him back in Wonder Woman's book as a way to boost her sales; and/or
3. The Wonder Woman book might have a new direction for which Steve would be a good fit, or a new creative team with hot ideas for him.
Imagine the editors of Superman not knowing what to do with Lois Lane or the Batman creative team not knowing what to do with Robin, then handing them over to another comic to be developed! Have we EVER seen that? Hell no.
At some point, you've got to ask, "What's wrong with Wonder Woman? Why can't I Ching be developed into a cool, mysterious cat in Woman Woman?"
Is ANY-one editing Wonder Woman?

Anyway, even if Azzarello had a great plan for Steve, he probably wouldn't have been allowed much if any control of the character; the higher ups obviously had high priority plans for Steve, leading up to the Superman-WW relationship and probably to Trinity War.

"Laissez-moi vous émerveiller:"
They don't bring in celeb writers to develop storylines for I Ching, Cheetah, Doctor Cyber and Steve Trevor [STEVE TREVOR?!!], turning them into fan sensations, before doling them out to other comics. They hand them over to ther comics, ..where Cheetah gets smacked around by Batman and Catwoman, and I Ching is rehabbed into an interesting supporting player, ..before he's killed. Defend it all you like; you don't see the Superman or Batman comics farming out Alfred, Lex Luthor and Lois Lane, like scrap paper in a kindergarten class, to be killed off in other comics. There's something terribly wrong with a comic, when that keeps happening, ..again and again.
And I'm tired of it happening in Wonder Woman. Why can't the creative team at Wonder Woman handle its business?
Yeah, the freak show of sibling, is starting tog et to me also!
