The film would be butchered if you did that. There are references to Scott in several places which would need to be cut, and he'd be gone with no explanation after all that work. The pre-credit sequence sets up the entire film and reverberates later on when Charles and Mags meet again at Jean's house. Xavier's words in the class foreshadow the reveal of his actions in containing the Phoenix. Not having Rogue return would just leave her choice open which is unnecessary as there may never be a film that follows.
The post credit sequence should definitely go, but it's easy to ignore where it is anyway.
