Yes, that's right. And now that you mention it, I remember CherokeeSam had suggested such a plot development, too.
The other possible plot device I can think of is "dark magic". If Odin used it to conjure Thor to Earth, maybe it weakens him. Does that sound plausible given how any such "dark magic" is established in 616 and given Odin's abilities?
It doesn't seem like there are many plot devices that can manage to weaken Odin.
