In a roundabout way, by doing it like this, the events of X1 onwards are still important/canon because, without them, we wouldn't get this 'better world' with a few changes.
You know, I could honestly see the franchise taking this route.

Personally I never saw a need for First Class (and any other "prequel" type X films) to match up exactly with the originals. I would have been content with a "loose" reboot.

That being said, I never saw a need for Abrams Star Trek to offer an in-universe explanation for its changes to TOS either, but Abrams went that route. Could be that Singer et al are taking a page from his playbook.
