We now live in a world where it could be possible that Hulk could wrestle with The Thing or Wolverine could fight alongside Captain America in WW2 or Spider-Man saying hi to Nick Fury (for all that to happen Marvel needs to make unrefusable offers to Fox/Sony). Bottom line is a shared world is possible and I love it and I'm not afraid to yell it out.
You're going by the assumption that TDKT will definitely not be in the same universe as MOS. We don't know yet if WB will bring back Nolan's Batman to just capitalize off of him or if they will have enough decency and respect for Nolan and the fans to not do that and just reboot. Hopefully they'll go for the latter but we shouldn't to a conclusion so soon. Chances are that they may in fact ruin your dream by shoehorning in a version of Batman that doesn't fully fit in naturally.

Also, I don't think it is fair to count and criticize the Nolan films as a thing of the past just because they will presumably not be in the shared universe. The thing is that the "heart" or "spirit" or "legacy" of the Nolan films or whatever you wanna call it will live on with the shared universe. I explain in further detail what I mean by this over here:
