Combining both casts in an epic cross-generation storyline makes it a much bigger film than either straight FC sequel or a sequel in the present with the original cast. Now it's unlikely that they can do this crossover twice so what they do next is a tad more murky.

DoFP is past as well as present (something that the above ignores completely), with the majority of the film taking place in the 70s if that interview with Singer is anything to go by.

It will actually flow much worse IMO if then jumps to after X3 again.
DOFP is also featuring the past but its because the present cast is going there. Its not like Origins and First Class that were merely showing events that already happened in this past. DOFP is rewriting the history of both timelines.

Its a different case compare to First Class and Origins.

I don't think so. In my opinion, the altered future will be post X3 and post The Wolverine.
