Not using Turkic letters is daft, particularly as there was a widely-used transliteration in Kazakhstan anyway. And even if not Ç Ş, they could have used Ć and Ś. 

There’s no value in using diagraphs in Kazakh particularly when there could be a one-to-one relation with the Cyrillic orthography, and I bet you anything there will be ambiguity where some morpheme ends in -s and the next begins with h- where you have [sx] and not [ʃ].
