I prefer my version of events where a quick explanation is built into the opening scene!
I do like your opening scene and that would be a great introduction, but just because X3 was released eight years ago does not mean that ordinary moviegoers can't watch it in anticipation for DoFP. As a matter of fact, I hear about people doing that all the time. Heck, FX still shows X3 to this day.
