@Mr. Dent: I read the article to which you're referring and didn't see anything in it that says that Quicksilver is only going to be used for one scene; all it says is that there's one specific scene for which he's ideally suited and in which he will be prominently featured. End. of. Story.

The way the arrangement works, Marvel Studios cannot refer to the character as a "mutant," and they can't mention Magneto at all. Likewise, Fox can't make any reference to The Avengers in their film.
I don't see how this is refutable. He says it in no unclear terms right here that Marvel has larger plans for the character and he will only be used for one action sequence in DOFP.
