Could an X4 have worked instead of Days of Future Past? Sure. But frankly the possibilities after Days of Future Past seem much better:
-Cyclops is alive and can finally lead the team
-Xavier & Magneto are in their 50s instead of their 70s (and IMO Fassbender's Magneto is much better than McKellen's)
-Mystique has a voice
-Jean Grey & Storm are younger & can be put to much better use
-Wolverine can still join the X-Men, same goes for Gambit.
-Sabertooth doesn't have to turn into a mindless thug
Bottom line: the roster & rogues gallery is much better with the timeline being rebooted in Days of Future Past.
Go ahead with that idea and you would just confuse casual viewers with this reset thing.
