I thought it was a fine intro to Hawky, and as long as we get a better look at him in this movie it's a non-issue.
Constraints be damned. If Hawkeye had all of, what 15 minutes' screen time in Avengers (seriously, somebody counted), and about 10 of those were spent under Loki's spell, Joss screwed up. The only one Loki needed was Selvig; he didn't need Hawkeye. Those 10 minutes could've then been spent on Hawkeye doing Hawkeye-ish and Avenger-ish things, and Clint would've had at least *a little* more of a presence.
