If memory serves me correctly, my hebrew lecturer (Dr Davila) was 
a supporter of this kind of theory. He used to refer at lot to 
theoretical proto-sinaitic forms in his explanations of peculiarities 
in the language.

Peter:

To try to test my theory that Hebrew originally had only a 
CV structure, and those at the end of words were usually 
unstressed, I tried reading out loud in Hebrew adding an 
unstressed "e" (short e) at the ends of words that did not 
end in vowels, and the stresses almost automatically fell 
on what is now the ending syllable. Now it could be that 
that is just idiosyncratic to me, but I found it was a result 
that I did not expect.
