Like maybe a film that focuses on Scott and Jean (both alive in the present after DOFP) and Sinister. Extensive flashbacks to their recruitment will fill out a villain plot that has been brewing for years.
Flashbacks might be one way to do it, yes.

Hopefully at some point, Storm gets a flashback/origin sequence too. Maybe in a later film with Shadow King.

The time-altering effects of DoFP allow all the X3 minor characters to be reused because history will turn out differently through ripple effects. The Vinnie Jones version of Cain Marko might never exist (perhaps mummy Marko's pregnancy/birth was problematic and so she had another child soon after and called him Cain). That would mean another man called Cain Marko might exist.

Similarly, Callisto was never referred to by name and didn't have the signature eyepatch or the more recent tentacles, Psylocke was wasted (the role was cut during production) and never referred to by name and Multiple Man could also appear again (bring back Eric Dane or just recast).

Reimagined versions of those characters wouldn't cause any problems. I doubt they will reuse Callisto and I'm not sure they would bother again with Juggernaut, but Psylocke is a strong possibility to reappear.
