What a wasted opportunity
Because Singer has built a world of realism. Information sent back and forth through time is much more plausible than a mutant physically jumping through portals. Given the mutant abilities featured by Nightcrawler and Kitty, it certainly makes leaping through a time portal a little more plausible, but not really. My guess is they want to conserve some costs and keep the OT crew to a minimum, the focus on 1970's. I think we are going to see a couple of big action scenes in the future and that will be that for the OT. Patrick Stewart may be in constant contact with his younger self, but I don't expect him to have a huge role either.
