from a studio point of view, that would be to kill your big franchise.
Do you really think Fox would want to kill the present world of the x-men to just do a sequel set in the 80's and then keep moving just with spin-offs?
which studio would want that?
I dont think they really care how much is kept. People were pretty pissed off last we saw them in X3.
People complain all the time about Storm, Cylclops, Iceman and Rogue. If they rebooted them or erased part of their histroy in an Alt timeline whats really to be missed? Those characters can all do more anyways. IN all honesty those characters sell regardless of who plays them or what little has been developed with them 10 years ago. Fox knows they have dropped the ball. DOFP is clean up to get back on track and start fresh, while not screwing over fans of the original.
